We want to document the experiences of communities in Cornwall during the Coronavirus crisis. Creating an audio and visual record.

Community Stories Cornwall documenting stories of ordinary people living through extraordinary times!


For 2021 we want to work with communities all over Cornwall talking about their personal experiences of the Coronavirus crisis.

By contributing to this shared history of the pandemic, we hope to bring the community closer together and discover the incredible diversity of experiences and perspectives that can be found behind every door on every street, each showing a different side to community life here in Cornwall.


“I’ve worked down South Crofty tin mine, been blown up three times, been shot twice, worked with the circus, skied all round the world… but never a pandemic like this, I don’t think anyone has… It’s unprecedented .” —  Nick


“My one rock has been Brian up the road, old Nemos. He’s fed me loads, he’s helped me out… I think we would have all starved to death if it wasn’t for Brian, he’s beautiful ” —  Dave

In 2021 we will work with a number of photographers, sounds recordists and professional who will conduct the interviews and edit the material for publication.  Executive Produced by Clare Tavernor

The Cornwall Film Festival charity was established in 2002 and run by a small team, freelancers and volunteers. It was founded by a group of filmmakers to advance the education of the public in the art of cinematography, filmmaking and other forms of moving images including films in the Cornish language. It now delivers not just the Film Festival, but clubs, events, education, training and opportunities in the media industry, working with groups facing social, cultural or economic exclusion from the richness of media culture.
