Park6 have completed the edit of a 35min documentary film ‘Diary of the Last Man’. An original film shot over two summers on the coast of South Wales, ‘Diary of the Last Man’ is an imaginative portrait of the writer Robert Minhinnick. A pre-screening was held for industry professionals last week at the Green Room in Porthcawl. We are hoping for a festival release in 2017 with launch nights in Bristol and Cardiff to be announced.

Shine a Light? Is a short film supporting the idea of democratising our energy supply whilst reducing climate change.
Filmed by Park6 Productions and produced by Sustainable Wales, it features former MP Alan Simpson, Professor Calvin Jones and local energy groups. It is backed by a superb soundtrack from chaired bard, Twm Morys.
The new Welsh government must use the Well-being of Future Generations, the Environment, and the Planning acts to work with communities and local government. Our children’s future demands it.
‘Shine A Light?’ is more than an observation of the obstacles to progress. It’s a rallying call for people to demand democratic local energy production.
In 2015, with the support of Arts Council England, Park6 made 30 short films featuring Steve Griffiths’ Late Love Poems. The films were shared week by week on YouTube prior to the publication of the poems by Cinnamon Press in January this year.
This Saturday at The Edge Arts Centre Cinema, Much Wenlock, Poet Steve Griffiths and Filmmaker Eamon Bourke will show eleven of their favourite films and discuss their making.
Wales and the UK lag far behind our European neighbours and some states in the USA regarding local energy production. This film by Park6 and Sustainable Wales urges the Welsh government and local authorities to rectify this.
Contributors include: former MP Alan Simpson; Calvin Jones, Professor of Economics Cardiff University; and local practitioners.
A short compilation of films was projected at the Blue Boar in Ludlow to celebrate the launch of Steve Griffith’s collection LateLovePoems
