On June 12th 2012, Watch Them Fall Down hosted their first ever Young Film event at the Vibe Gallery
in Bermondsey (South London). Young Film is all about bringing young, talented filmmakers and actors together to share their work and to connect with like-minded people – free of charge. We don’t believe youngsters should have to pay money just to meet new people or to screen their work, two of the most important things for aspiring filmmakers, like ourselves, to get started in this industry. Without people, collaboration and sharing, we are nothing.
We’ve finally had an afternoon to go through the footage of our first Young Film event at the Vibe Gallery and piece together a little video. It was great watching the night back and hearing what you guys thought of it all.
We cannot thank everyone who worked together to organise the event enough and, of course, many thanks to the wonderful people that joined us at Vibe on June 12th to watch some amazing short films by some amazingly talented young filmmakers, as well as having a drink or three and mingling after the screening. It was awesome meeting you all and we can’t wait to put on another Young Film event so we can fill the room with such talented and lovely people again.
We also have some thoughts on the night from those who joined us:
“I’m glad I came and I hope there’s plenty more of these in the future some time.”
Victoria Valcheva, Emily Aitcheson & Oriel Bathurst
Oriel: “It’s nice to be introduced to young filmmakers, to know that there is a strong network and that it’s so accessible.”
Victoria: “I think that’s what is so important for me really is that it makes me want to start filming and get connections. I think that’s really useful.”
Emily: “It’s nice that people are being creative and doing their own thing and then coming together.”
Victoria: “And that people are sharing big ideas and getting inspired.”
Emily: “It’s been lovely. Thank you!”
“It was a pleasant evening to talk to everyone, to meet everyone. It was good to catch up with what everyone is doing and to see new films. I had a fun time… I had a fun time.”
“It was good, it’s really exciting getting young people together… Things can happen… Let’s make it happen…”
Amber Napthine & Catherine Señor Clinton
Catherine: “It’s funny how they’re only short films but I felt really moved by some of them.”
Amber: “They’re only 10 or 15-minute films but you get so much out of them… It was a great event, and well done Kyle and Jade!”
Again, thank you all for coming and we look forward to seeing you all again in the near future.
