PocketVisions- Filmmaking for Social Change

by Abi Weaver

A Participatory Screening

“The pocket in question is a pocket of resistance. A pocket is formed when two or more people come together in agreement” – John Berger

On the 28th Feb the LIDF launched a new stage of its now three year project of film and social change workshops in Pakistan. PocketVisions is the umbrella organisation for the LIDF’s work in training and film activisim. Over the next three weeks the short films made during last year’s workshops will be screened across Pakistan. Films that tell the stories of Pakistan’s citizens – how they live and work, the challenges they face, and their aspirations for the future.

Next week at The Book Club we will screen films from the project and hope to encourage further debate and involvement.

If you are interested in the present situation in Pakistan – and who shouldn’t be – in how young filmmakers make their first steps, and in how film can create change, please come along and take part.

If you are already involved in similar projects, or would like to be, we would be delighted if you would share your experiences with us on Wednesday and together we can work towards an extended debate and new projects at the LIDF 2011.

Wednesday 16th March
Time: 7pm – 9pm
