Fancy making your own film? Want to see it on the big screen at Cineworld St Neots? St Neots Film Festival is joining forces with Love’s Farm Community Association to stage two video production workshops that will help take your project from concept to finished film.

The first workshop (13 August, 10am-1pm) will focus on planning and shooting. The second workshop (10 September, 1-4pm) is all about editing. Both are designed to be informative, inspiring and most of all, fun! They’re aimed at families (with children aged 7+) or groups of friends (aged 18+) and cost £5 per session per family or group.

The workshops will reveal what’s involved and provide lots of tips and tricks. Each family or group will then be supported as they work on their film in their own time. We’ll help you get your film finished in time for submission to St Neots Film Festival, which runs from 7th-11th November at Cineworld St Neots and Love’s Farm House. Deadline for submissions is 30 October. The first eight families/groups to sign up to both workshops will receive free software worth £33. Please email ben.pitt@ourlovesfarm.co.uk or call Love’s Farm House on 01480 262626 to book your place.
