Do you live in Toothill? Are you aged between 14 and 19? Do you enjoy films and want to meet other like-minded young people?
A film club launches at Toothill Farm in June and organiser Keith Phillips of Ideal Films is appealing for enthusiastic young people to get involved, watch films, learn about making films, even perhaps make one of their own – and enjoy free pizza.
“We’re offering young people the opportunity to run their own film club as part of the national network called Into Film,” said Keith.
“They will be able to broaden their film viewing experience, and learn a bit about the culture of film, as well as how they are made.”
Ideal Films have worked with students from Isambard and Commonweal schools and youth mentoring organisation SMASH to produce short films. ‘Surprise Party’ by Commonweal students was nominated in the 11 to13 short films category at the 2013 National Youth Film Festival.
The Toothill Film Club has received funding from the Big Local Community Chest. Keith added: “It would be great if this could become a club led by young people deciding what programme they want to run, when they want it to happen and what other media related activities they would like to experience”
