We are delighted to share the news that the Jump Cut team will be premiering a short documentary they have made at the Robert Burns Film Theatre as part of this year's Dumfries Music Collective.

The screening will take place on Friday 15th October at 7.30pm. 

Jump Cut is a project for a small group of young people aged 18 – 30 from Dumfries & Galloway to work alongside established filmmaker, photographer and visual artist Colin Tennant, to create short films inspired by the diverse cultural programme of Upland and the DMC (Dumfries Music Collective).

The project ran between late April – September 2021 during which time, 4 young people will worked with Colin who acted as a film making ‘mentor’ sharing his skills and knowledge with the group and supporting them throughout the process. The group filmed and edited ‘live’ projects for both Upland and Dumfries Music Collective over the duration.

The group captured behind the scenes footage as DMC prepared for their Plaza gigs and the result is The Plaza: A Documentary, which will be screened as a precursor to Sisters With Transistors: Electronic Music's Unsung Heroines - A feature Documentary by Lisa Rovner.
