Workshop introduces children to filmmaking

Budding young filmmakers are being invited to take part in a three-day workshop on Blyth beach.

Pop-Up Film School is holding the event for nine to 14-year-olds between Saturday, August 3, and Monday, August 5 – 10am to 3pm each day.

And the event, organised by Tyneside Cinema, will culminate with a film preview on the Monday.

A spokesperson said: “This is a great opportunity for any young person to have a go at dipping into filmmaking, acting or directing. Perhaps we will find new budding young filmmakers too.”

Only 15 places are available for the event, which costs £15 per person, and takes place at the Dave Stephen’s Centre.
