OSBD has always been about creating innovative films that speak into the heart of culture. Films that matter. Films and stories that come from a place of seeking social justice and equality , hope and positive engagement around the important issues of our day. This has taken us into the shanty towns of Peru and high security prisons of the Ukraine, as well as many places across the UK and the rest of the world.
If you would like to see a new wave of young filmmakers making films that matter and help create positive change in the world then we are seeking funders / partners who have a desire to harness our experience with the talent and desire of young filmmakers.
If you are interested in that, please get in touch.
Short films about Hope in a time of Climate Crisis.
Planet Hope is an OSBD project in collaboration with filmmaker and OSBD original collaborator, Tim Dendy and YOU! The aim is to work with emerging filmmakers to provide free video resources to enable wider discussion, engagement and action at a time when Climate Crisis is and should be high on all of our agendas.
Planet Earth is an anthology of short documentary films looking at the current climate crisis and specifically exploring where the narrative of Hope might lie. It asks artists, activists, thinkers and spiritual seekers if and how they can hold onto hope in such a dangerous and threatening age. Could you help us create such films? Do you have ideas or indeed films you have already made we could promote?
Do get in touch to get involved.
A mini doc series in the making:
#Take A Minute is a continuous social media campaign highlighting the issues of mental health and well being and young people.
