VAULT is a documentary filmmaking project, giving young people from across the 5 Olympic boroughs the opportunity to produce a series of short films that explore the Olympics and the Olympic ideals.
In year one 35 young people from across the five Olympic boroughs of London produced a series of short films that, through the voices of 1948 competitors and young 2012 hopefuls explore and compare memories of 1948 and the dreams and hopes for 2012. The films were premiered at the Barbican Centre as part of Create2010, were exhibited on the BBCs “Big Screen” national network of screens in public spaces and are now available on the BBC London website and ParalympicSport.tv.
For 2010-11 the theme was Aspire. 24 young people made 4 films to explore aspiration within the context of the core Olympic and Paralympic values of: respect, excellence, friendship, courage, determination, inspiration and equality. The films look how these values influence the lives and aspirations of local people as well as those of young 2012 hopefuls. Three groups chose to make films about inspirational figures in their communities that use sport to engage and motivate young people. The fourth made an inspirational film about Team GB Paralympic Dressage competitor Natasha Baker.
All nine films will be screened again as part of the special 2012 East End Film Festival and at a selection of East End venues during the Games themselves.
Produced in partnership with East End Film Festival. Supported by the Olympic Host Boroughs.
