ARE you made of the ‘write’ stuff? …a youth film academy has started its search for screenplays to be made into full length feature films next year.
The Co-operative British Youth Film Academy gives 14 to 25-year-olds unique experiences of the movie industry and is seeking new scripts or, screenplays of classics, for next summer’s filming schedule.
It is backed by The Co-operative Group as part of its commitment to inspiring young people and, this year, it shot four movies at film-making summer camps which combine professionals from film and education to mentor students and offer everything from acting to make-up and camera through to post-production.
Scripts should be submitted to BYFA@co-operative.coop by November 8. For full details see www.britishyouthfilmacademy.com
