FreqOUT! visits ITM Grande Finale

The ITM (Inclusion Through Media) project ran in collaboration with Goldsmiths and worked with FreqOUT! during the 'Hidden Homeless' Film Project at the start of 2007. The Grande Finale was held at the BFI and included talks from The Uk Film Council, Nesta, Musicians In Focus, BBC and Real Time Video.

Adnan Hanzi worked with the young people from the 'Hidden Homeless' Project to teach them how to upload their films to The Broadcast Machine. This open source method of distribution enables free distribution online and has proven to be a successful way of distributing the fantastic projects created by the young people. FreqOUT! worked with a young person from the project to upload a database of films and sound work from Vital's history. You can view the films here: student films

FreqOUT! intends to incorporate this into future projects to empower yong people to get their work seen by the masses!
