“It’s been absolutely amazing because I’ve done things that I didn’t realise I could do… It’s been a journey. I’ve never, ever done anything like this before. I’ve been so hands-on in it… it’s broadened my horizons”
CINAGE participant 2016
Filmmaking for Active Ageing is a course for people of 60 years and over who want the opportunity to make films that tell their story. From April to November 2017, you will attend regular Tuesday evening workshops – and some weekend workshops – at Leeds Beckett University’s Northern Film School, on screenwriting, directing, producing and editing, you will watch and discuss films, and you will talk about your experience of ageing.
In mid July you will take part in a two week long production period, where you will collaborate with professionals and Northern Film School students, with state of the art equipment, in the making of a short film. Then, from
September through November you will be working on editing the picture, music and sound until you reach a final version which will be screened at the Hyde Park Picture House in early December.
