Total Arts is Cambridge Junction’s fortnightly arts group for disabled young people. Total Arts engages and empowers young people through high quality artistic activity led by the young people and supported by professional artists, achieving strong artistic outcomes and enhancing the confidence, communication and wellbeing of the young people involved.

In 2017 for the first time, Total Arts organised a screening at the Light Cinema Cambridge of their own films and the films made as a result of a term-long film-making project Cambridge Junction embarked on with Spring Common Academy. In 2018 the first full Film Festival took shape. Every year, Cambridge Junction work with multiple groups of young people with a range of complex needs to produce original short films, which are showcased at the festival.  

THE 2022 FESTIVAL

Not even COVID-19 could stop the creativity and originality of Total Art’s participants, who worked throughout lockdown to create new content. The team and the festival is back and bigger than ever with so many comedic, gripping, thought provoking and hard-hitting new films and music videos to share, made by groups of young people with complex needs. Since 2020 we have run workshops in SEND and hospital schools, Alternative Provisions, and with those who are NEET, working with hundreds of young people, and creating some incredible films and music videos, many of which are being shared at the festival. 

Across the two-day Festival we have a range of screenings, talks, filmmaking and behind-the-scenes workshops and an awards ceremony. Spoiler: there will be dancing! We hope you enjoy the Total Arts Film Festival 2022 – Big Trouble Little Pictures!

Big Trouble Little Pictures will feature films made by Granta School • Castle School • Cabins at Comberton Village College, Melbourne Village College and St Peter’s School • Romsey Mill • Spring Common Academy • Olive AP Academy • The Cavendish School • The Darwin Centre The Kite Trust • Red Balloon • The Croft
