The fantastic journey that was Random Acts 2015-2018 came to an end in April.
Random Acts First Acts was a groundbreaking partnership between Arts Council England, Channel 4 and five agencies across the nation, including Calling the Shots in the South West. The three years saw 72 short films made by film makers aged 16-24 years. The results were startling with training, mentoring and continuing professional development and an array of exhbition and bursary opportunities for the successful artists involved.
You can watch some of the films on the Random Acts website and read more about the scheme on our archived page.
