My life, my dementia, my club

This film was made with support from Innovations in dementia during a two-day filmmaking workshop for a group of people with dementia run by Be Inspired Films at Woodley Age Concern.

Members of the group took part in the film and had fun using the cameras and helping with the editing.

The Good Life Club at Woodley Age Concern hosted the workshop, which was run by Be Inspired Films and funded by the Big Lottery Fund. Members of the Club wanted to make a film to:

  • Promote the Club and what they do there,
  • Increase understanding of how people with dementia can have a good life, and
  • Encourage other people with dementia to ‘give it a go!’ and try out their local group.

Innovations in dementia want to encourage services for people with dementia and other groups to use film as a powerful way to ensure that people’s voices are heard. Download their guide on filmmaking with people with dementia Telling our stories.
