The YoUTH FILM Programme
It's time to embrace independent cinema in a different way than ever before in Luton.
The Bute Street Festival team and The Youth Network invite you to become part of our team.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Bute Street is a festival dedicated to showcasing independent film, art and music videos. Over the short years we have been running the festival we have realised as much as we love putting on a festival each year, we also wanted to create a hub of upskilling for creatives and for people with budding interests.
As part of our plan this year we have collaborated with Youth Network sponsored by the BFI, The ICO, and supported by The Culture Trust and our lovely friends Festival Formula to create a project called the Youth Film Programmers project. This project is aimed at young people ages 16 - 22 who are interested in film and festival organisation. Over the course of 8 weeks it gives the group the opportunity to practically learn about independent filmmaking and cinema as well as mainstream/commercial cinema and how both of these mediums exist. The second part of this project will be to put the power into the hands of the group, with support from our youth leaders, to create their own showcase of films that they can then share with family and friends.
