Silent Cinema Film School

1 Mar – 14 May 2017

Are you 14 – 19 years old?
Would you like to make and star in a film to be screened at Hauser & Wirth Somerset in front of a film festival audience?

We are looking for actors, a director of photography, a designer, a film editor and a writer to create and perform in a short film made with Hauser & Wirth Somerset and the Youth Cinema Foundation. The film will be shown with live musical accompaniment at the Silent Cinema Festival on 12 – 14 May 2017.

This is a unique opportunity. Recent graduates of Arthaus (Hauser & Wirth Somerset’s youth group) and the Youth Cinema Foundation are currently starring in BBC Television dramas and working on professional feature films. They have gained places with drama schools, performing arts schools, universities and The National Youth Theatre.

Places on this course are limited, and require an interview.
All participants will receive a final copy of the film.

Cost £120
