The creators of Alchemy of Waste are inspired by dumpster divers and tinkerers – those eccentric characters who are normally perceived as hoarders, but are in fact the underground innovators of the upcycling movement. We are producing a series of short films called ‘ALL IS FOUND’, which identify and investigate the project’s fundamental themes.


We are looking for likeminded filmmakers to contribute to this series. If you and/or anyone you know has an idea for an instalment and would like to collaborate – we want to hear from you! Keep in mind that your film should feature character(s) who upcycle; such as artists, musicians, designers, builders, etc. If your idea aligns with our mandate – send a short pitch and sample of your previous work to [email protected].

Looking forward to your submissions!

PS: Check out the trailer for first instalment of ‘All is Found’ here!
