A selection of archive films and reminiscences about Hackney, edited and curated by Asya Gefter of Fragile Archivists.
Open Cinema was a collective adventure in digital filmmaking and sharing that offered free training, a range of free events, and the opportunity to collaborate on the production of a community film event in Hackney. The project began in March 2015 and culminated in a final screening festival on 21 November 2015.
Working with artist Neil Cummings and a pool of film professionals and enthusiasts, we met every three weeks on Wednesdays, 3 to 6pm, learning and sharing skills, making films and working from existing archival film material sourced from all over the borough of Hackney.
