Local Shops Project

In March we also approached local filmmaker Sam Ratcliffe-Pinder to make a short feature about local shops in Rotherham. Our intention was to show these as adverts before our film screenings to connect with the local community and support local trade. Sam recruited Sarah Glassner to conduct the interviews and they started filming at the local Bridal Shop opposite the gallery. Sarah asked them to talk briefly about their business, what they like about Rotherham and what shop we should go and visit next. This began an unexpected passage through Rotherham with each business determining the next chapter in the film. This project will be screened in parts before our main features throughout the event.
