Watch over 200 bold and creative short films made by young artist filmmakers. The award-winning short films that feature in this interactive exhibition have been created by 16-24 year-olds from all over England, including young filmmakers from Worcestershire. Presenting films that cover a wide variety of subjects and art forms, Playback reflects the concerns and vision of a diverse pool of young people working with film today. From narrative films about drag queens, super-heroes, job centres and zombies to animated stories that feature talking goldfish and radioactive snails. The exhibition is made up of individual touchscreens, giving you the opportunity to choose the films you wish to see, from drama and comedy, to dance and spoken word.
The exhibition is funded by Arts Council England and is a joint initiative with Channel 4 Random Acts.
A collection of works celebrating LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) identities and aesthetics by contemporary artists with a connection to Worcestershire. Gender play, lesbian and gay imagery, queer and trash aesthetics, and Pride’s rainbow colours collide in this collection brought together as part of Worcestershire Pride’s Festival of Arts & Culture. The event celebrates the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK and coincides with Worcestershire Pride in Worcester on 23 September 2017.
