Upcoming Projects 2023

So much is happening with Action On The Side this year

Script Development

We continue to run our fortnightly script development workshops at the Curzon Soho, Wednesday evenings. Check our Events Page for dates and to sign up.

Cinema SoundEX

The experimental experience for filmmakers and composers kicks off September 1st.

In a series of two rounds, filmmakers make two short films, and composers make two soundtracks. But there's a catch!

In Round Two (October), you have three weeks to make a new piece based on another's work: filmmakers make a film to the music they receive, and composers make a soundtrack to they film they receive.
