A community-wide program aimed at connecting the people,
places and stories in Malden through discovery-based filmmaking.
Who is Malden?
This is the question 30 individuals will answer this summer as they explore the unique and diverse city of Malden with their phone.
This amazing opportunity is part of a community-wide program aimed at connecting the people, places and stories in Malden through discovery-based filmmaking.
Working in small groups with the support of professional filmmakers, individuals will co-create short films that will be premiered at special venues around the City in front of live audiences, sparking fresh dialogue and ideas – in ways that are fun and exhilarating.
Be part of this program as a Filmbuilder or Volunteer!
Share about the opportunity with those who might be interested.
No film or media experience needed. Just an interest in exploring Malden and its people. Deadline April 27.
Various opportunities will be available to be part of this project. Complete an interest form. We will be in touch.
For more information, attend an info session.
About the Program
Filmbuilding Malden is a city-wide program that connects communities through collaborative filmmaking projects, film screenings, and public media art events.
It is about bringing people from various backgrounds together to explore ideas and create meaningful change within a community through arts and culture.
Several teams of individuals will co-create short films based on the theme WHO IS MALDEN. These teams will work under the mentorship of professional filmmakers and with help from UMA in-house media experts. Each of these films will be screened at a public event in different neighborhoods and communities around Malden.
In Fall of 2023, a final showcase and celebration of all short films will take place at a city-wide event, which will include lively panel discussions, Q&As, mixers, activities and performances.
Through co-creating and sharing stories, we can boost cultural competency, economic opportunity and social influence – within a community and beyond! ~Tom Flint
