BlueJam is running a project for Keswick Film Festival investigating film and memory. Twelve young people from Penrith to Workington will organise a series of public film showings and discussions to stimulate the creation of a live/recorded performance to open the festival in February.

We will be looking at the “Osprey” Short Film element of the Festival particularly and aiming to widen participation in the competition and audience for the final showing.

The Workington group will be meeting up at the Old Firestation on January 23rd to create poetry, artwork and a soundtrack with Tom Leah and Karen Barbier.
