Film Fun for Youngsters

September 23, 2008

BUDDING film-makers from Merseyside will have their work shown at a national film festival.

Films by youngsters from Liverpool, Wallasey and Chester will be screened at The Co-operative Young Film-Makers Festival on Thursday, October 9 and Friday, October 10 at Bradford’s National Media Museum.

Edgar Wright, award-winning director of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, said: “The Co-operative festival is a fantastic opportunity for any young film-maker. I saw all my early shorts in front of packed houses at the National Media Museum. It inspired me ever onward.”

Workshops at the festival include screenwriting, acting, Bollywood dancing and creating a movie soundtrack.

Young film-makers will also have the chance to make an animation with David Bunting, who has worked on Disney’s Tigger The Movie.
