Frankston Multicultural Community Network documentary project

Whitewater Documentaries is proud to have been commissioned to create a series of migrant memoirs from the Frankston area.

The Frankston Multicultural Community Network is a local community organization aimed at representing the views and interests of Frankston’s culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

This project will document  the stories and experiences of some of Frankston’s elder migrants.

We will initially produce 5 x 30-minute documentary interviews with prominent Frankston migrant personalities.

We have developed a website for the project and will upload interviews as they are completed.
