Inspired by the likes of Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Andrea Arnold etc but mainly by real peoples’ experiences, Film is integral to what we do. It's accessible (everyone loves a good story), it's a great way to explore difficult issues, learn skills and explain our worlds to each other.
We use a fantastic technical team, who work alongside participants to create short films, features, documentaries on a range of issues. See below to explore the three feature films produced by Kandu Arts so far, and a number of shorts created during projects with young people exploring their lives. Not only are the films original, so is the music - all created by the participants, recorded and produced at Kandu.

Below are many of the short films created by young people and members of the community produced and facilitated by Kandu Arts. We have, over the years, also adopted the film-making process in community projects. These are listed in a seperate index.
