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.

October's 10 x 10

Photographers starred at October's 10 x 10 with 2 great projects along with 2 video projects and a chat by Channel 31.

Doco3000 regular Rodney Dekker started the evening with
Tides of Resilience.

Climate change is impacting communities around the world, particularly in developing countries. Witness these impacts on rural villages in Bangladesh through a multimedia presentation by Rodney Dekker. A longer version of this presentation will be on exhibition at Obscura Gallery 24 October and i'm about to commence work on a documentary radio program for ABC radio national's 360 program who have taken on the project.

Newcomer David Franjic screened his work in progress - Diverse City.

Diverse-City focuses on a diversity of communities living in and around a city (in this case Amsterdam). The aim of the series is to paint a multi-cultural and multi-dimensional portrait of a city through the exploration of a range of different communities. Through doing this I hope to illustrate that a city's identity is shaped and formed through a diverse array of cultural influences. I also look to bring further public understanding to the different communities involved and open conversation on alternative attitudes towards living.

From the age of 16 Ivan Lister has taken time out to make sure his mates and neighbours have been getting on ok through droughts, floods, financial hardship and depression.
