Between September and December 2014, participants will work with film industry and education professionals to produce a short Sci-Fi film to coincide with the forthcoming BFI Sci-Fi season: Days of Fear and Wonder.
The extensive programme includes hands-on filmmaking workshops, plus free access to screenings and events at the 58th BFI London Film Festival, the BFI Sci-Fi Season and monthly BFI Future Film events. Participants will also be actively involved in the exhibition and distribution of their work and gain a Silver Arts Award.
Most sessions will run on Wednesday evenings between 6-9pm and on the weekends (during the day), as well as through half terms in October 2014 at BFI Southbank.
There will be an open evening on Tuesday 26 August from 6-9pm in the Blue Room at BFI Southbank to provide applicants and their parents/guardians with further information.
