What's it all about?

Over the 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 supported by 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 learn producing, camera skills and presenting skills whilst learning more about independent cinema. 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. Lets also not forget the chance to meet the filmmakers.


These fantastic people have taken part in the Youth Film Programme over the last two years. Will you be joining the network? Sign-up below.
