Funds to get young people into film making

Funds have been released to develop youth participation in film across the north east.

Organisations are being urged to put young people in the picture with the launch of two funds seeking to develop the north east’s provision around youth participation in film.

Bridge North East and Tyneside Cinema are seeking involvement from organisations for The North East Filmmaker Fund and North East Venues Research & Development Fund which aim to enhance the existing provision of film activity for young people in the region.

The North East Filmmakers Fund is offering grants of up to £2,000 for individuals or organisations involved in film making.
