If you're aged 11-18 with a passion for film, drama and digital media then the Young Filmmakers Club could be for you. Join the Young Filmmakers Club to develop new skills in filmmaking and acting for screen and to pursue your own exciting, creative ideas.

Who is this course for?
This course is open to young people aged 11-18 years old of any experience level.

The course is accessible for people with disabilities. We provide a learning support worker or students may be accompanied by their own carer or support worker. The room is wheelchair accessible. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending to provide support. Please contact us to discuss your specific situation and needs.

What will you learn on this course?
This course will give you an insight into the process, techniques and skills involved in making a film. Each term the content and structure of the course is decided by the group which sees students generating an idea together or working with a member’s idea for a group project film. Alternatively you may work in smaller groups on new ideas or those brought by a number of members. During the course you will have the option to work as a writer, actor, director and crew member learning a range of film making skills. The tutor will guide the group through the entire process from the initial generation of ideas generation to shooting and editing. There will be a special screening of the work produced on the course in mac’s cinema for invited family and friends.

Anyone who attends this course will have automatic membership to the Interfilm Film Club which encourages young people to write reviews of current films. This is a great opportunity for reviewers to enter prize draws which has led to previous students winning DVDs and other film goodies.

Do you need to bring anything?
All equipment and materials are provided. For films with ambitious needs, students will take part in enlisting additional support.

Are there any additional costs?
No additional costs unless there are specific resources that students wish to have for themselves.

Who teaches this course?
