NEWS: Young Bradford film-makers document city's social issues (UK)
Young film-makers from disadvantaged communities have made documentaries exploring social issues such as drugs, alcohol and unemployment, as part of a Bradford City of Film-funded project.
The films will be screened next week at a ceremony marking the youngsters’ achievements.
The young people, aged 14 to 19, completed film-making courses at the Community Film Skills Academy, run by Bradford creative development agency Fabric. Funded by City of Film and Mediabox – delivered by a consortium in partnership with Skillset and the UK Film Council to fund media projects involving disadvantaged young people – the project was aimed at equipping youngsters with basic film-making skills, including camera work, sound, editing, interviewing and presenting.
