For Young Creatives

Artist Film Academy

Deadline: 5pm Friday 15 October 2021

If you are aged 15-19 and interested in art and film then our Artist Film Academy gives you an exciting opportunity to explore the relationship between art and film, collaborate with like-minded people to devise, shoot and edit your own film with the support of professional artists, and then see shared on the big screen at Tyneside Cinema.

To apply for this free opportunity, you should:

· Be keen to learn more about art and film

· Want to make a film as part of a team

· Want to develop technical skills in camera, sound and editing

· Want to meet new people

· Be able to make the project dates listed below

· Live in the North East of England

· Be aged 15-19

No previous filmmaking experience is needed, just a keen interest in art and film and an enthusiasm to take part.

Project Dates

The project will start in the October half-term, with sessions each day between 10.00 and 16.00 between Monday 25 and Friday 29 October when films will be devised and shot.

This will be followed by six sessions on Saturdays (6, 13, 20, 27 November and 4, 11 December) also between 10.00 and 16.00.

We plan to deliver the course in-person at Tyneside Cinema, but we may move some of it on-line if the wider public health situation changes in accordance with government guidelines and restrictions for Covid-19.

Travel to and from workshops will be reimbursed.

Apply online by using this link by 5pm on Friday 15 October 2021.

The Artist Film Academy is made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England.
