SAVI (Social Action Video Initiative) 2021


Co-designed with City of Culture and working with their community partners, SAVI 2021 centres on a smartphone filmmaking project with young people in Coventry.

Through a series of workshops led by Dr Michele Aaron and a local filmmaker between April and June 2021, participants gained practical and critical skills in digital storytelling. Short films about a personal or local social justice issue were produced and showcased at CVX in August 2021, and included in the programme at Screening Rights Film Festival in November 2021.

The project was led by Dr Michele Aaron (Film and Television Studies, University of Warwick), and was funded through the Connecting Cultures GRP's ‘Connecting cultures through co-production’ call
