ScreenPLAY is a social enterprise which evolved out of a series of film projects with young people created for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad. We believe in enabling and empowering people through arts activity.

Giving people a voice, through film and arts projects helps develop life skills, confidence and self esteem while reducing exclusion and inequality. Young people become more active partners in their own education, developing knowledge for later life. The people we work with are at the heart of our films, making a difference to their schools, neighbourhoods and wider communities.
The range of our work has grown to include making seafront banners with children in schools, and an immersive ‘healing journey’ in a remote Dorset landscape using mobile digital technologies. Our projects create a sense of place in which those taking part become co-creators of the work.
ScreenPLAY brings Hollywood magic to the classroom with their Stopmotion classes geared to the youngest aspiring filmmakers

No Escape - a new film for Anti Bullying week
Dorset villages are idyllic places to live right ?
Not always - especially if you are a teenager. Living in a village can be isolating - and if you are unlucky enough to be bullied, sometimes it feels like there's no escape. This film has been made by young people at Stratton Youth Club in Dorset to help raise awareness of cyberbullying. They hope schools and youth clubs will use the it to promote discussion around issues of bullying and cyberbullying. No Escape has been made with the support of film professionals from ScreenPLAY in association with Into Film as part of their See it Make it project.
