The films from the Imaginary Friends project, which took filmmaking to young people who don’t have easy lives, will be premiered at the Two Short Nights Film Festival at the Exeter Phoenix, on Friday and Saturday November 28 and 29.

The interactive mixed media project had the Exeter Phoenix’s media centre working with young people from Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education, Exeter Health Care Arts, Animated Exeter (Young and Animated) and the Devon Youth Inclusion Service to teach them new digital media skills such as Flash, stop motion, photography, audio recording and graphic illustration and encouraging them to express themselves.

The intention is for ‘Imaginary Friends’ to be a project that the young people involved will ultimately take charge of themselves, and it is being supervised by award-winning South West based filmmaker and film director Peter Snelling.

After the premiere during Two Short Nights, the films will be released on DVD, showcased on Chew TV and screened at Animated Exeter.
