“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Our best work happens when we contribute something new, something generous, something that makes an improvement. And making a contribution isn’t possible until we ship the work.

More than 1 million girls in the UK lose interest in sport as teenagers.

Research has found that 59% of teenage girls who used to be sporty like competitive sport, but they’re being failed due to early-years stereotyping, inadequate opportunities.

It is well documented that taking part in physical activity can have a profound and positive effect on mental wellbeing as well as providing many pivotal life skills such as resilience, teamwork and communication. – The Guardian

The Offside! event on January 20th, 2024 is hoping to tip the balance by empowering and encouraging young women to get excited and involved in sport.

This is our second film and drawing event with the Institut Français – a cooperation stretching back over 5 years to our premiere of Ai Wei Wei’s “The Rest.”

The first workshop had over 50 participants, including newly arrived Afghan women evacuated from Kabul, some of whom had never been to a cinema before.
