Feast of Films
Over 8 years we have seen some really great films made with the help of FEAST funding. For the first time we have pulled some of these films together here. First up is the FEAST film, which explains what we do and why it is important to Cornwall. Second is our slide show with images from numerous FEAST projects plus an extraordinary list of all the communities which have had FEAST projects.
The other films have all been made by film makers in Cornwall. Some, such as the Dementia Uncovered films and Mazed were commissioned as a set, and are probably best enjoyed when viewed in this way. The rest are a wonderful collection whose hallmark is variety and vigour. We have everything from short animations to full length feature films! Enjoy.
The reasons for FEAST – by artists and communities.
A conservative list of all the places, big and tiny, that FEAST
has benefitted, along with some of our favourite images from the last 8 years
This video diary captures the journey of 3 apprentices who
spent 6 weeks working on Rogue’s Winter Woods show as part
of a FEAST / Creative Skills project funded by the Paul Hamlyn
Foundation. If you ever need an argument for why we should
give the next generation a helping hand, this is it.
