SOUTHWARK.TV FESTIVAL of Film & Photography
for the Mental Health Community
9th-12th October 2006
Corsica Studios, 5 Elephant Road SE17 1LB
Daily 2-8pm Admission Free

Awards For All funding generously funded this event organised by Southwark.TV and the Community TV Trust.
Media training was provided for four partner groups enabling a week of film screenings, talks and a photographic exhibition to coincide with World Mental Health Day on 10th October 2006.

The partners in this project were Castle Arts, Cooltan Arts, Mental Fight Club and Creative Routes, each presented material on a different day of the festival. The schedule was as follows:

Monday October 9th: Castle Arts.
Castle Arts offered a photographic project of the local built environment, plus a new film "Animal Talk"

Tuesday October 10th: Mental Fight Club
Mental Fight Club presented films by members and David Neita presented another new offering from Ben Okri's epic poem, 'Mental Fight', while Edgar Allan Poe rounded off with panache and dark force

Wednesday October 11th: Cooltan Arts
Cooltan drummed, filmed and recited

Thursday October 12th: Creative Routes
Creative Routes offered much from their video archive plus a fine new video+animation work, 'Omnibus'


Southwark.TV Festival media trainers were
Ilaria Mare - Castle Arts and Cooltan Arts
Howard Garfield - Mental Fight Club
Babis Alexiadis and Martin Ford - Creative Routes

Ilaria had worked twice before with Castle Arts on Southwark.TV projects, but was making her debut with Cooltan Arts; Howard, a professional video editor, assisted MFC with post production on footage from their recent events; Babis, for animation, and Martin, for video production & filmmaking, are regular trainers with Creative Routes.

The theme of film and photography was stretched considerably by two of the four groups: Mental Fight Club's evening featured a stage performance by Sticking Place Theatre of "The Premature Burial", a play based on the story by Edgar Allan Poe, and Cooltan Arts offered more of a 'club night' with a poetry recital and a drumming workshop, the latter being open for anyone to join.

Each day of the festival ran from 2pm to 8pm.
Admission was of course free and refreshments were available.
