Participate, Challenge, Community...Through Film

2001

Go For It! Volunteering in the Avondhu Area Produced with the Avondhu Development Group this film documents and promotes the amount of voluntary activity in this area of North Cork and encourages those who might be interested to get involved. The film was produced as part of the United Nations International Year of the Volunteer.

 

Listen! The Voices and Vision of Older Women Frameworks was approached by the Cork Older Women’s Network and the Ballyphehane/Togher Community Development Project, based in Cork City, about making a short video on ageism as experienced by older people. The group were tired of being misrepresented in the media and wished to portray their views on what it means to be an older person. Frameworks collaborated closely with the group to develop the content of the film and they were also actively involved in all stages of production.

Coping with the Euro Produced in collaboration with the Cope Foundation, this is an educational video on the changeover to the Euro currency, made by people with learning disabilities for people with learning disabilities. Clients from the Cope Foundation wrote the script, acted in the film and helped out on the production. They were determined to try and help others understand the implications of the changeover to the Euro, from their point of view.

 

Horse Mad ( with Farranree/Fairhill Youth Project (An Ogra Chorcai Youth Development Project) The idea for this video was initially to encourage a group of young boys in the Farranree/Fairhill Youth Project in Cork city to learn how to work together and to develop group work skills by being part of a film production crew. The boys chose the subject for the film and following some initial training, shot the entire film themselves, facilitated by Frameworks. The result was an award-winning documentary, which was followed by a sequel later that year.

 

What’s Your Cover? This video shows a group of women from the Togher Drama Group in Cork City reflecting back on a drama project they had been involved in 5 years previously and assessing the impact of the project on their lives today. In the drama project they acted out scenes based on real-life situations, regarding health, housing and other social issues that members of their community were experiencing.

 

 

Film-making workshops with Picture Speak Mallow Funded by the Arts Office of Cork County Council, Frameworks devised a training programme in Community Film-making for representatives from a variety of community organisations around Mallow. The outcome of the workshops was the formation of a community video group called Picture Speak who then went on to produce their first film ‘Newcomers to Mallow’. In 2003, the group went on to do more advanced training.

 

Kerry Film Festival Schools Project Frameworks worked with students from four schools to produce short films for screening at the Kerry Film Festival in October 2001.
