Developed with mentoring from professional filmmakers who use archive film in their practice, these new films uncover the forgotten histories of underrepresented communities, on themes including the environment, mental health, youth culture and cultural diversity.

What happens when sixteen emerging filmmakers are given access to the BBC archives to create a new short film to mark the BBC centenary?

This short film programme will provide an insight into how you make archive-inspired documentaries and showcase a diverse range of creative responses to 100 years of BBC storytelling from a new generation of filmmakers.

This project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (part of UK Research and Innovation) in partnership with the BBC, Kingston School of Art and Birkbeck Institute for the Moving Image (BIMI):
