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.

September 10 x 10

After a month off, 10 x 10 was back again with 3 great project screening.

Charlotte previewed her Mexican based project What lies Between.

The film introduces two ongoing social movements in Mexico, and tries to give account, through these respective movements, for the situation of powerlessness which a large, marginalised minority find themselves in. This situation involves being subject to, on the one hand, lingering elements of authoritarianism (which remain despite one party rule coming to a close in 2000), which crop up in certain parts of Mexico when protests get too loud. Likewise, this section of the population is increasingly finding themselves in the way of the project of neo-liberal reform being pushed by the PRI's successors, the business elite, conservative christian party, the PAN - whose policies conflict with the social agenda pushed for by those experiencing poverty and marginalisation.

Charlotte is currently looking for an editor to help out. If you would like to get in touch with her, you can email her at c.king@internode.on.net

Also screening was Mary Keily as she prepares to head to Spain and walk El Camino de Santiago.
