CINAGE: Filmmaking for Active Ageing - New Course Announced  

Filmmaking for Active Ageing is a course for people of 60 years and over who want the opportunity to make films that tell their story. 

From April to November 2017 you’ll attend regular Tuesday evening workshops – and some weekend workshops – at Leeds Beckett University’s Northern Film School on screenwriting, directing, producing and editing.

You will watch and discuss films and talk about your experience of ageing. 

In mid-July you’ll take part in a two week long production period, where you collaborate with professionals and Northern Film School students with state of the art equipment, in the making of a short film.

From September through November you’ll work on editing the picture, music and sound until you reach a final version which will be screened at the Hyde Park Picture House in early December.

Contact Dave Turner on 0113 812 3330 or email [email protected] for more information.

There will also be a Free CINAGE screening/participant Q&A at the idyllic Ilkley Cinema on 27 February 2017.

Information about that free event can be found via following URL booking link:
