Launch of Polish Voice TV

Somerset Film - an arts delivery organisation which receives funding from South Somerset District Council - is working with Yeovil Advice Centre and Phoenix School of Languages to launch Polish Voice TV in Yeovil on Tuesday 28 February.

Polish Voice TV is an online TV platform being set up to promote understanding between Somerset communities, demystify national stereotypes, provide a space to share ideas and to promote collective endeavour.

To date twenty-two first time filmmakers have worked together at the Bridgwater Engine Room to create seven short films with which to launch the platform.  The training has been led by award winning filmmaker Stephen Clarke with support from Somerset Skills and Learning. The films will be shown publicly for the first time at the Yeovil launch.

Councillor Sylvia Seal, SSDC Portfolio Holder for Leisure & Culture, said: "We work with a number of arts organisations offering a range of creative activities to the people of South Somerset.  With the Polish Voice Project, Somerset Film are providing training and a platform for Polish people to share their stories with the rest of the community."

Michal Puzynski, Polish Voice co-ordinator says: 'We want everyone to come and see the work, meet the makers.  We also want to tell people about a further training day being organised in Yeovil for after Easter.  All welcome, do come along!'

The launch is on Tuesday 28 February from 7pm till 9pm at the Phoenix School of Languages in Eastville, Yeovil.  There is more information about Polish Voice at https://www.facebook.com/PolishVoiceTV/
