The Limelight Film Awards – Film Of The Night Winners  – Mile End Community Project


The Mile End Community Project runs out of the converted pram sheds on Hamlets Way. The centre is run by Nurull Islam and two of the other people involved in starting it, Assan Ali and Selim Uddin.

Over the last five months young people at the project have been busy producing their latest piece, a documentary film challenging judgements and common misconceptions about people. The end product is a powerful, challenging and artistic four minute film which raises important questions about the way in which people from all walks of life can be guilty of stereotyping one another.
