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.

Alone in the forest, children find a strange stone...
Children from Manor Park First School in Dorchester who watch and review movies in their after school Film Club, have made a short film of their own. 

With support from Into Film, the 30 eight and nine year olds have created an atmospheric five minute drama called
The Stone - under the guidance of filmmakers Sharon Hayden and Alastair Nisbet from ScreenPLAY.

“We wanted to make it feel like we were on a journey through the forest - and were all a bit scared,” said Archie, aged 9. Headteacher Melanie Cridland said the children had gained a huge amount from the experience.
