Zoom Me A River

Facilitated by Council, the five-minute film is a creative response to the social isolation and how communities came together virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic in Golden Plains Shire. The project was a multi-media collaboration involving multiple individual artists and groups from all corners of the Shire. The final video product was brought together and animated by film maker Leonie Van Eyk from Castlemaine, who worked with each group and artist to develop the content.

The film was funded by a $5,000 grant from the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund Recovery Boost program for the project. The Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund is provided through Regional Arts Australia, administered in Victoria by Regional Arts Victoria.
