Urban Media Arts (UMA, formerly Malden Access TV) is excited to announce the theme and 2023 schedule for the “Filmbuilding Malden: Our City in Motion” program, a unique, citywide program that strengthens the Malden community through collaborative filmmaking projects, film screenings and public media art events. This program will take place May through October 2023.
Made possible by funding from the City of Malden, this program brings people of different backgrounds together to explore and share stories that when combined offer a fantastic lens to “Who is Malden.” Filmbuilders co-create short films with the support of professional filmmakers. The films will be premiered at special venues around the city in front of live audiences, sparking fresh dialogue and ideas that showcase the richness of our community. In addition to opportunities to explore and engage more deeply with the community, Filmbuilders will also receive mentorship from experienced local filmmakers, training, workshops and a stipend for their work. No prior filmmaking experience is necessary.
Filmbuilding Malden is seeking curious individuals with stories to tell who are interested in meeting new people, exploring their community and working with a small group to collaborate on a short film together. Prospective Filmbuilders should be connected to Malden in some way.
Information sessions for prospective applicants will be held on Saturday, March 11 from 4-5:30 p.m. at UMA (145 Pleasant St.), and on Thursday, March 16 from 7-8 p.m. on Zoom.
Those interested should apply by April 20, 2023. For more information visit bit.ly/whoismalden, email Ose at email@example.com or call 781-480-3214.
