Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival has teamed up once again with Berwick Youth Project to further open up the film world to young people in Berwick-upon-Tweed and the surrounding area.
As an addition to the youth project’s regular film club, the Festival and the Youth Project are inviting everyone between the age of 13 and 19 to come along to the Beehive on Golden Square, Berwick on Thursday 10th May from 6-9pm for a taster session of ‘Film Night’ to find out how they can get involved in the Festival, the world of Hollywood and beyond!
Film Night will then take place at the Beehive every Thursday from June 14th, 6–9pm, through to the Festival in September, giving young people the chance to see some great films, take part in quizzes with the chance to win prizes, help to programme the Festival and be part of the selection committee for the Chris Anderson Award for Best Young Filmmaker!
Film Night is totally free of charge and young people will also be able to take advantage of exclusive benefits such as free VIP Festival passes and early booking on the Festival’s filmmaking workshops. The sessions will once again be run by the Festival’s Youth Projects Producer Adam Graham, who has years of experience in film, film education, and a background in running Leeds Young People’s Film Festival.
Film Night at the Beehive is a partnership between the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival and Berwick Youth Project, and is gratefully supported by The Northern Angel Fund, via Community Foundation.
Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival will be opening its annual call for submissions for the Chris Anderson Award for Best Young Filmmaker next month - welcoming all young filmmakers in North East England and the Scottish Borders to submit their short films for the chance to see them on the big screen at The Maltings Theatre & Cinema and win £200 prize money!
“The last two years working with Berwick Youth Project have been fantastic and this year should be even bigger and better with some great films, prizes and inside information on the film industry and the making of films from around the world”
Adam Graham, Youth Projects Producer, Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival
“It’s great to have the Festival back at the Beehive for our films nights, this partnership means that each year we can utilise Adam’s knowledge and the film festival’s opportunities which in turn keeps young people watching and talking about film and media throughout the rest of the year at our regular Thursday night film club”
Merrick Thomson, Youth Work Team Leader, Berwick Youth Project
