CINAGE: Filmmaking for Active Ageing – New Course Announced

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’ll 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 talk about your experience of ageing. 

In mid-July you’ll take part in a two week long production period, where you collaborate with professionals and Northern Film School students with state of the art equipment, in the making of a short film.

From September through November you’ll work 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.

Contact Dave Turner on 0113 812 3330 or email for more information.

There will also be a Free CINAGE screening/participant Q&A at the idyllic Ilkley Cinema on 27 February 2017.

Information about that free event can be found via following URL booking link:
