Looking for 30 16-19 year olds who love watching, talking, and learning about cinema and films to come on a week long residential course in Sheffield from 24th - 30th July 2016.  During your time on the course you will meet and work with many industry professionals including:

  • Director Rachel Tunnard (Winner of Nora Ephron prize at Tribeca Film Festival 2016 for Adult Life Skills) - find out how she got her film in front of an audience
