Join us for a showcase of some of the best films made by young, Northern filmmakers as part of DIY Filmmaking Challenge: Sci-Fi.
Following a callout from Film Hub North, filmmakers aged 16-25 from across the region have been making no-budget, micro-short films experimenting with science fiction storytelling.
At this event, we’ll showcase the shortlisted entries and announce the winning filmmaker, who will receive £1,000 development funding to make their next short.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Northern filmmaker Sean McKenna, BFI Film Academy Coordinator Nora Murphy, and Sam Barnett from Film Hub North where they will discuss routes into the film industry.
This event is open to all - including challenge participants, aspiring filmmakers and film fans who want to see new work from the North’s emerging filmmakers.
All tickets £4.
