The project is an introduction to film literacy focused primarilyon LGBTQ+ representation in film and how or if it feels reflective of the groups experience and identity.
Participants will be given a selection of film titles, which can be watch individually or as a shared experience (facilitated by the project delivery team). During sessions we will discuss what we have watched as we explore LGBTQ+ representation in film and media. Discussion will focus on what are we have watched, what we think of it, was it real, was it a positive portrayal? How a character was portrayed- had the film maker created a cinematographic troupe or a well-rounded character? Is it similar to our lived experience? What cinematic device was used to influence the audience’s perception of the character.
Participants will also be encouraged to share interesting media representations they have come across via other platforms and debate the juxtaposition of the media and it’s representation. Participants will explore the under representation of LGBTQ+people both on screen and within the film industry.
The project will be underpinned with media safety as we explore how to support LGBTQ+ young people to stay safe online by highlighting resources like www.thinkuknow.co.uk and www.internetmatters.org
