Have your say

Are you aged between eight and 16, and interested in film? Would you like to learn the basics of film-making in a fun, friendly environment?

If so, then you are most welcome to join a free workshop for young people taking place on Saturday, April 15, 11am to 5pm.

The event takes place at the West Norfolk Deaf Association in Railway Road, Lynn, and is being staged by the organisers of the King’s Lynn Film Festival (which will be returning this autumn).

Ian Barton, chair of King’s Lynn Film Festival, said: “You will get the chance to familiarise yourself with basic film-making equipment, including how to utilise your own mobile devices, learn how to create storylines, and finally you will make your own short film.

“Our aim is to provide you with technical skills that will enable you to operate professional film equipment, but also to transfer that knowledge into getting the best out of devices and software that are freely available or which you may already possess.

“There is even the possibility that we might screen the finished results at the Film Festival itself, so you could see your efforts on the big screen!”

This event is being led by local film-maker Martins Strals from Riarmato Productions, and has been made possible by the support of the Norfolk Community Foundation. Places are limited so don’t delay! To book your free place, or for more info email
