Made by the Sea – Tobermory

Everyone is welcome for a special screening of local archive films alongside new films made by young people on Mull inspired by local film heritage and their lives in the community now. This is the first time the new films of Tobermory will be screened. Some of the filmmakers will be in attendance as will curator Shona Thomson and filmmaker Alasdair Satchel for a blether about the project after the screening. In October 2018, Shona and Alasdair visited An Tobar to run workshops with Mull Youth Theatre. Shona screened a selection of archive films featuring Tobermory originally screened in the Screen Machine mobile cinema in 2017. Dating from the 1970s and featuring Tobermory’s 200th anniversary celebrations in 1988, the films were found in the collections of the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive and Mull Museum in Tobermory. Watching through new eyes, the young people were intrigued to see how their local neighbourhood had been represented on-screen in the past. That same visit, Alasdair led filmmaking workshops enabling the young people to make their own one-minute films around the school. Since then, the young filmmakers have continued to work with Alasdair to capture the community they live in on cameras and mobile phones. With the aim of creating archive films of the future, the resulting films are inspired by the form of the archive films but offer the fresh perspective of a young person living, working and playing on Mull in 2019. Made by the Sea is a partnership project between the Screen Machine, A Kind of Seeing and Struthach Films. The project is funded by Highlands and Islands Enterprise. PG
