Bow film charity looks to new partnerships to make up funding shortfall
A Bow centre for film and photography has found a new way to make income after losing its Arts Council England funding in March.
Four Corners, based in Roman Road, will hold an open afternoon next Thursday to celebrate three new partnerships with film companies and art groups who will rent new space within the centre.
It is hoped working with FAVA, who hire out specialist cameras including for Oscar-winning film The Hurt Locker, Labyrinth, who offer professional photo-printing services and Roof Unit, will go some way to make up for the loss of ACE funding.
The charity, which offers subsidised access to cutting-edge film-making equipment, failed in its bid to get �240,000 of funding from the national body which has been hit by government cuts.
Gavin Ramsey, the charity’s gallery co-ordinator, said; “We hope it will go some way to meeting income.”

Visitors will see demonstrations from artists working at the centre during the open afternoon, including a chance to see 3D camera technology from FAVA.
