London Recut

London Recut - Mosaic Films (Large)

Mosaic Films partnered with Film London, the BFI, and London’s Screen Archives network to create an innovative online film initiative and competition. London Recut challenged London’s citizens to explore over three hours of moving image archive material of the city, some of which has been made available for the first time, and use it to create their own films via an easy-to-use online editing tool. The competition was open to everyone, whether a budding filmmaker, a keen historian, or just someone who wanted to have a go.

45 films were submitted to the competition and put to the public vote. A special jury of Londoners then chose the four winners from a shortlist of the 16 most popular entries.
