Cine Sisters South West is an Arts Council funded collective of womxn working in film and living in Devon & Cornwall, and they are offering a social media commission for their May take over at the Exeter Phoenix.
They launched in Sept 2020 at Plymouth Art Weekender with a showcasing of talks and films curated through open call, online events and sold-out live screenings at Plymouth Arts Cinema.
Their aim is to develop a network that provides inspiration, supports our members to create projects on a range of platforms, and offers small, funded opportunities for womxn filmmakers in our region. This year they have secured the Artists Associates Scheme with Exeter Phoenix, to produce and deliver a range of events and opportunities.
2021 is a pivotal year for them, and this commission is one of their first. They aim to use the results of this commission on their website, across social media and in press releases and similar.
Cine Sisters SW (CSSW) has been invited to be part of the Associate Artists Scheme run by Exeter Phoenix and will take over the Phoenix building for the afternoon and evening of Wednesday 26 May 2021. They will be delivering cinema screenings, a Masterclass, a workshop, and 1:1 surgeries for womxn filmmakers, plus a social networking event on the terrace. CSSW is looking to commission a photographer to document all these activities during our takeover.
