Please note: Owing to the fact that we do not have an administrator at present, we very much regret that we are unable to respond to all applications. If you have not heard from us by 10am, Friday 21 February, this will unfortunately mean that we have not been able to shortlist you on this occasion.

Similarly, if you have questions then please get in touch – admin@purplefieldproductions.org – but do be aware that as we are currently without administrator support it may take several days to get back to you.

Another International Award

More success for our cerebral palsy drama LISILOJULIKANA (The Unknown) which is achieving great things wherever it is shown.

Grace, the leading actress smiling in between takes.

The international PICTURE THIS Film Festival – which focuses on promoting awareness and education around disability – have awarded us the Dodie Spittal Award. This is wonderful news and we are grateful to the film festival for their recognition. Especially as we are about to launch a funding appeal to raise money for dubbing the film into other African languages so that it can continue it’s journey. We have requests for the film in Ghana, Malawi and Tanzania.

Training in Partnership

With our training programme in Sierra Leone going from strength to strength we have designed a new logo for films that are now being produced by the filmmakers we are working with. It’s more than just Training – it’s development of their skills, their knowledge and experience. Future View Film Group are a credit to their community.

 

WE WIN A MAJOR INTERNATIONAL AWARD

The organisations behind World Cerebral Palsy Day 2017 have awarded us a Major Award for Public Awareness.

Our film drama keeps on going from success to success and it is wonderful to know that all our hard work and collaboration with partners in Kenya, the UK and other countries is paying off.

This is great news for us as a small volunteer-led charity and we hope this will lead to more interest in distribution across other countries in Africa.

Moving into a new office

This month sees the start of planning to move the admin office into the centre of Ilminster which will give Purple Field Productions a new presence in the town. Locals are already familiar with our work but now they will see our logo and title on the high street and we hope we can provide another positive dynamic to the varied selection of shops and offices in the small Somerset market town.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our new plaque is being created and should be up on the door soon. Plus we are proud to be adorning the walls of the office and corridors with some images from our projects in Malawi, Cambodia and Kenya.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stand by for more news of our office adventures that will allow us hopefully to do more work with our partners and friends abroad. The plan is to be in by Christmas!
