Watch This Is Mine

Watch This Is Mine

Tuesday, 24 June 2014

This is it... after months of filming, editing and all-round creativity from communities across the UK, we present This Is Mine, a short film uniting all your submissions to provide a snapshot of community and memories of mining communities.

At the start of Touring Consortium Theatre Company's production of Brassed Off, we asked you to get involved and tell us what community meant to you using the medium of film. It was an ambitious project for you and for us!

We were overwhelmed with how many of you responded, sharing your stories about community life before, during and after the strikes of 1983/84. Touring Consortium Theatre Company used of all your submissions to create a short 20 minute film, which they premiered at the National Coal Mining Museum's Miners' Gala on Sunday 22 June 2014.  The dedication and hard work that went into some of the submissions was simply fantastic! We hope you are happy with the edit and will enjoy 'This Is Mine' as a memorable film in its own right. 

You can now watch the entire thing below on YouTube. We'd love to hear what you think. You can tweet us @TheatreCloud using the hashtag #ThisisMine

If you would like to have a screening of this film for any non-commercial purpose then please email [email protected] and for the cost of the DVD, packaging and posting we will send you one.
