Film | LGBT Britain

Thursday, May 17, 2018 -

Time: 7:30pm - 9:45pm

LGBT equalityTo mark International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, in association with Unite Somerset Community and Unite South West. Britain’s LGBT history is the inspiring subject for this collection of archive films from the BFI. Featuring moving and fascinating films spanning 1909 to 1994, the screening programme documents a century in which homosexuality went from crime to Pride, via decades of profoundly courageous activism, and the shifting attitudes to LGBT people and their rights throughout a time of explosive social change. It includes some of the earliest known representations of LGBT people on screen, the collection includes a 1925 film on ‘Cutie Cattaro’, a boxer more interested in flirting than fighting and a drag queen, ‘Percy’ competing for a prize in 1909. Later films explore the struggles and identity politics of the ‘80s and ‘90s, including early AIDS victims recounting their painful experiences, and the fight for transgender rights in the European Court. Cert PG | 85 mins | Director: Various Please Note: This film contains a sequence of flashing lights which might affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy. Doors Open 7pm.

We will then be joined by a model, and go out onto the streets as a group, each taking turns to work with him/her, while at the same time continuing to be able to ask questions ad gain further info. We will then return to The Engine Room for the final hour and look at some basic editing of your photos in either Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop. What you'll learn: You'll learn about framing & composition, working with natural/available light, how to get your photos sharp & in focus, how to work with a model as a subject and understand better what your camera is doing at all times.

Course | Adobe Lightroom

Saturday, May 19, 2018 -

Time: 2:00pm - 5:00pm

Learn about this essential piece of software for photographers. Basic computer skills are required for this course. Further Information What you'll need to bring: 1 - You may wish to bring some RAW photos of your own to work on once we have covered the basics. 2 - A notepad & pen. What this session will cover: In this introduction to Lightroom we will learn how to import & organise your photos. We will then begin to cover all of the main attributes of editing a photo, exposure, contrast, colour, sharpening, cropping, black & white etc etc. We will then look a little further into some slightly more advanced techniques such as removing parts of the photo you may not want i.e. a road sign or post which may be sticking out of someones head. We will then look at finally exporting your photos and posting them to people via social media or email. You may not know the power of Adobes Lightroom but once you begin you will wonder how you managed without it, allowing you to always release the full potential of any photo you take.

Monday, Jul 16, 2018 - Saturday, Jul 28, 2018

Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm

What does it mean to…Belong in Bridgwater A Bridgwater Town Council Project, delivered by Somerset Film and Supported by Big Lottery Fund Since the start of 2018, we have worked on the Belonging in Bridgwater project which has helped strengthen community ties as the town negotiates this time of rapid growth and change. We worked with local communities to explore what it means to 'Belong in Bridgwater'. What it means to belong in the town, and to be part of the local community? And equally, what does it feel like if you feel that you do not belong? What makes Bridgwater feel like home to you?  Somerset Film has supported the project by creating opportunities for local people from all backgrounds and of all ages to share their stories and experiences on film and tape and to reflect on what it means to belong here. Join us at The Engine Room this July to discover what reflections were made at our exciting interactive, digital exhibition. Also! add your own thoughts and share what it means to you to belong here... No need to book just pop in! Open 10am until 4pm Monday to Friday and at Bridgwater Quayside Festival on Saturday 21st July 2018
