Camcorder Guerillas is a Glasgow community-based, voluntary collective of professional filmmakers, artists and activists, working together to make and showcase documentaries for those concerned with human rights, welfare and social justice initiatives.
Our work has been shown at international and national festivals, in schools and universities and used amongst others by Amnesty International, Greenpeace, Oxfam, CND, Trident Ploughshares, Scottish Refugee Council, Citizen Advice Bureau, and Christian Aid.
The Collective has made over 20 films since we formed in January 2003. They include Deadly Cargo (Tracking the Nuclear Warhead convoy), Those Left Behind, Visit Dungavel - Monster of the Glen, Why close the G8?, Welcome? , Dear Mrs. Blair and more recently Skipping Dinner, an installation /performance and now also a documentary on the connections between climate change, industrialised food production, supermarket-based shopping and food waste.
Covering local grassroots and human rights issues, our films are used for campaigning and awareness raising and are often accompanied by action resource packs on DVD, aiming to encourage audiences to come together to start or contribute to campaigns.
The collective also host regular screening and discussion events.
In the Autumn 2010, the collective launched and toured their latest productions:
Petrol in my Food, a short origami animation examining the link between our food and its dependency on oil. Recommended by Eco Schools Network Scotland 2011
Skipping Dinner, a tasteful documentary on the connections between industrialized food production, supermarket-based shopping and consumer waste.
