Fixers Film Screening

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A free premiere of three powerful new films will highlight the issues young people in London really care about and what they are doing to tackle them.

Gang culture, mental illness and dog behaviour awareness are the focus of the three high quality 'Fixers' productions.

They have all been made by young people working as 'Fixers ' in a bid to make a difference and promote understanding.

Fixers is a movement of 7,000 16 to 25-year-olds across the UK who are supported by the charity to take action and change things for the better, addressing any issue they feel strongly about.

How each Fixer tackles their chosen issue is up to them – as long as they benefit someone else.

The screening will feature the work of three groups of Fixers who have chosen to make films to get their message across and will be an opportunity to find out more about the Fixers movement.

The screening will see the debut of Breaking the Cycle, a film designed to help young people to resist the pressures of gang culture.

Made by Dante Powell-Farquharson, 22, from South Norwood, and Mohamed Idle, 21, from Vauxhall, the satirical film focuses on the problems that being in a gang can cause, and how joining a gang is never a good decision.

Also being shown is Work.Life.Balance, which highlights the first signs of psychosis, to help promoting understanding of the condition and how to seek help.

The powerful film was made by 22-year-old Loga Suren from Edmonton who has personal experience of the condition.

The screening will also include It's a Dog's Life, made by Zak Soan, 21, to promote a better understanding of dog behaviour.
