2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

We Take Them and We Make Them

Young budding filmmakers from Blackburn Youth Zone, took part in an exciting journey of discovery through Mitchell and Kenyon’s “factory-gate” films. Members of the youth zone consulted with experts and the local community to create their own films, with the support of young Blackburn filmmaker Aaron Dunleavy. The films captured their interpretation of “local films for local people” – creating their own heritage of Blackburn for future generations.
