Inspired by a visit from the Echo Park Film centre, Los Angeles, USA, 24Hour Hackney is a day in the life of our neighbourhood, as seen through the camera lenses of twenty four participants of Open Cinema. Each hour of the day is represented by one minute of screen time. The clock strikes 7am and our journey begins...
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.
