An incredible week of filmmaking for 12-18 year olds

Tues 23rd - Fri 26th, OCTOBER 2018

From 23-26 October 2018 we'll be running our second ever Caithness Film School!
A select group of 12-18 year olds (or high school age) will spend 4 days learning about a variety of aspects of filmmaking including writing, directing, acting, cinematography and editing - all through fun, hands-on exercises.
The 4-day Film School is highly practical and by the end of the week participants will have created their own stories and improvised, rehearsed, filmed and edited various short films, ready for an exciting final premiere in front of friends and family!
This year the 4 days of filmmaking will take place across TWO fantastic local arts VENUES, working in collaboration to deliver a top quality filmmaking experience:
23rd, 24th and 26th at LYTH ARTS CENTRE
 9:00am – 12:30pm for 12-14s
2 – 5:30pm for 15-18s
