Enriching Communities through Cinema

Action speaks louder than words, add some lights and camera into the equation and we have art in motion. Art that can communicate with the audience from 2 minutes to two hours and leave them awestruck, possibly in tears, preferably inspired to act. At LOCO’MOTION we love to bring these moments of art to life. 

We believe in engaging emotionally with communities through a screen, projector, and people’s reality as well as imagination. We love to screen films that inspire, educate and raise awareness amongst communities towards living an enriched life whilst creating a better world.
We are a social enterprise, initiated by the community for the community.

Our Belief

our-belief

We believe in creating a better world - A world where life is driven by shared human values of benevolence, community, compassion, kinship, friendship, health, happiness and security. These fundamental values unite us all regardless of our backgrounds and belief systems.

Through these shared values we develop a sense of community, where we can thrive and advance towards creating a better world together; a world of equal opportunity, where every individual has the ability to pursue their passion in life. It might sound farfetched, though the human mind has no boundaries, nor should ones actions to realize those beliefs.
