Last year First Take worked alongside Queer Bodies Poetry Collective with 10 Queer poets from Liverpool to create Queer inSIGHT. A project that brought spoken word, music and film together to explore the ever changing landscape of Gender and Sexuality.

As well as working towards creating the films , First Take also hosted a Queer inSIGHT evening at Quarry where the poets performed alongside music, visuals and AI vjing.

All the films went on to be selected for the Community Strand at the Iris prize 2023.





First Take is an award-winning not for profit filmmaking and digital arts organisation specialising in working with oppressed communities and on artistic collaborations, producing radical, authentic, untold stories. It aims to create projects that impact on people’s lives, their understanding and perceptions.




First Take is proud to be funded by Culture Liverpool and Liverpool City Council. This vital funding is being used strategically to drive the city plan agenda.
