The Future Filmmaker Weekend
The Future Filmmaker Weekend
The Future Filmmaker Weekend takes students aged 12-14 on an immersive exploration of the world of filmmaking. Across 2 days you will take part in a series of interactive simulations, seminars and Q&A sessions, all led by a group of experience industry professionals. The programme gives you direct access to top screenwriters, directors, producers, actors, and sound editors, who will guide you through the process of creating, shooting, and editing short film scenes and answer all your burning questions.
You will also be coached on how to gain a competitive edge in the race for the best jobs in film, with guidance on GCSE choices, extra-curricular activities, work experience and more. The programme will end with a personal and creative 'Project Launchpad', an invaluable starting point from which to begin your journey into the film industry.
