What is 10 x 10?

10 x 10 is a free project development workshop. We meet every month at 7pm at Gertrudes Brown Couch, 30 Gertrude St Fitzroy in Melbourne. Filmmakers can screen up to 10 minutes of their non-fiction works-in-progress and receive 10 minutes of directed feedback in a supportive environment. It's a great opportunity to see some fantastic work, and also to be a part of the Melbourne independent film community.

We present up to 4 projects at our monthly screenings. If you would like to screen please contact Benj and Gen at documentary3000@gmail.com The 10 x 10 format was created by www.doculink.org.

We had a great night in September at Glitch with two great projects, and a keen audience.

First up was Poppy Shmith and Peter George with their film, YAKking.

YAKking is an educational resource/documentary commissioned by Family Planning Victoria, in collaboration with their young gay support group YAK. As the YAK members interview representatives of queer venues and institutions, they explore where to go in Melbourne if you're young and same-sex attracted, bisexual or just curious. Extensive discussions with the YAKers themselves about sexuality, identity and belonging provide a closer look into the lives and minds of Queer youth.

Then Craig Boord screened Little Ripper.

Pigeon Fanciers train their birds to fly home, it's a tough competition and highly competitive. This passion for pigeons takes over peoples lives, no holidays, no backyard, full dedication, it's all about the birds. Little Ripper is a story about Pigeon racers in Australia. Their sport is dying, but their love for their birds is strong. This short interesting documentary explains the sport through talking to the Men and Women behind the birds.

Thanks to Glitch, and we hope to see you at Gertrudes soon!

10 x 10 is open to everyone so if you know someone who may be interested, bring them along!
