THE REEL WALTHAMSTOW
Created in the London borough of Waltham Forest, Everyday Stories of Colossal Importance is a short film inspired by people’s stories and memories of the local area. The project began with a community engagement process where filmmakers Sarah-Mace Dennis and Richard Bell interviewed people who were from, or who currently live in Walthamstow. Sarah used aspects of the following stories to inspire the script which aimed to combine powerful narratives with vivid imagery to turn everyday experiences into colourful worlds.

The Reel Walthamstow project was commissioned by Waltham Forest Council and its partners Hill and ISHA, and is funded by the Section 106 planning contributions related to the development of The Scene at Cleveland Place.
