Film makers in the East Midlands are being invited to apply for funding and support to produce a short film that relates in some way to the notion of ‘archive’.
QUAD, Derby’s art centre and cinema, has launched a commission programme that will have the theme of ‘HEARTLAND ARCHIVE’ at its core.
The theme is in response to QUAD’s hosting of the BFI’s Mediatheque (the HEARTLAND COLLECTION was curated by MACE in conjunction with the BFI) and its close relationship with MACE.
Successful submissions will be inspired by moving image archive material that relates to the East Midlands. This inspirational footage could be held at MACE, be accessed via the Mediatheque or from elsewhere.
If you are interested in viewing titles held at MACE then please feel free to get in touch with Richard Shenton and he will make arrangements for it to be uploaded to our website.
