Birmingham LGBT are looking to commission a videographer/film-director/film-maker to create an educational and informative short documentary film (approx. 30-45 minutes) exploring the untold history of Birmingham’s first and oldest LGBTQ+ venue, the Nightingale Club.
The documentary film will be the primary outcome of Nightingale50, a community heritage project funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund, which will record the history of the venue through archival objects, ephemera, and through the oral histories of its customers, patrons, and staff over the last 50 years.
The aim of this film will be to educate and inform both LGBTQ+ and non LGBTQ+ audiences on the unique and rich history of the venue and the communities it has served in Birmingham for the last 50 years. It should explain the heritage uncovered throughout the Nightingale 50 project to new audiences and create new understanding between communities about the experiences of LGBTQ+ people in Birmingham.
FEE: £7500 (inclusive of VAT).
DEADLINE: applications must be received by midday on Monday 14th October.
This opportunity is open to anyone with the relevant skillset and experience, all applicants must be over 18. We would encourage individual or agencies who are from the West midlands and identify as LGBTQ+ to apply.
