This paper explores the different discourses of ‘citizenship’ that emerged within a youth filmmaking project for young British Muslims. The author demonstrates how project funders and organizers propose different versions of citizenship to those privileged by the young participants. The paper considers particular technical, creative and social affordances of filmmaking so as to examine whether these different visions are able to be reconciled.
