THEIR STORY
FILM FUND

In 2021, Their Story won the Paddington Development Trust's Tech For Good award for their work with young people. We were awarded grant money which we used to found our first ever film training programme to support and train young people in the area who were struggling with either access to equipment, funds or skills. We awarded our film fund fellows money to sustain themselves whilst they developed their films, hands on training and bought them their own equipment to use in the process. All fellows produced incredible pieces of work which were shown at our North West London 2021 Film Festival on the 31st July.
