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 will gain practical and critical skills in digital storytelling. They will produce short form films about a personal or local social justice issue. These films will be showcased at CVX in August, and included in the programme at Screening Rights Film Festival in November 2021.
The project is led by Dr Michele Aaron from Film and Television Studies at the University of Warwick, and is funded through the Connecting Cultures GRP's ‘Connecting cultures through co-production’ call
