About the project
In partnership with The City of Malden and Filmbuilding, Urban Media Arts (UMA) is launching a creative placemaking project in 2022/23 called Filmbuilding Malden: Our City in Motion — a series of filmmaking projects and screening events aimed at city wide community-building and the enhancement of economic opportunities in specificallytargeted neighborhoods around the City of Malden, Massachusetts.
Interested in learning about an exciting creative placemaking project in 2022/23 called Filmbuilding Malden: Our City in Motion – a series of filmmaking projects and screening events aimed at citywide community-building and the enhancement of economic opportunities in the City of Malden, MA.?
We invite prospective sponsors, advisors and participants to get involved. We invite you to complete an interest form.
Using discovery based filmbuilding as an innovative approach to visual storytelling, a diverse cross-section of community members co-create short films which explore timely themes that stir the agency to imagine and create what an equitable and thriving Malden might look like.
Screenings reimagine the filmgoing experience by engaging audiences in dialogue and participatory programming while activating public spaces and local businesses.
The project will culminate in a final event in which all completed films will be screened as one, and memorialized through site-specific programs aimed at enhancing opportunities for cross-cultural and cross-sector exchange as well as overall commercial development.
