Are you a budding film, TV or music video director?
Could you be the next Lena Khan, Meghna Gulzar, Sanjay Leela Bhansali or Shoojit Sircar?
The Young Directors Programme, run by Communities Together, will offer 15 young people (age 14-16) six months’ FREE training in film-making and TV production.
You will get the opportunity to:
Create your own original projects, e.g. short films, TV broadcasts, music videos
Collaborate on a film for distribution in West Yorkshire schools, aimed at encouraging students to have informed discussions about gang violence and the risks involved in taking and selling drugs
The project will allow you to express your creativity in a supportive environment, take responsibility for your own projects and learn invaluable life and work skills.
We are holding this open session at our Festival Hub for anyone who would like to find out more and potentially take part in the project, which will start in the autumn.
