FABRICA YOUNG FILM PROGRAMMERS
LOVE MOVIES? WANT TO CHOOSE WHAT GOES ON THE BIG SCREEN?
JOIN FRESH PERSPECTIVES AND HAVE YOUR SAY.
This autumn, Fabrica Film Club is supporting a group of film enthusiasts aged 16-25 in realising a series of professional and collaborative film screenings at Fabrica.
Successful candidates will:
Genuinely influence our programming by working with the Fabrica Film Club team to co-curate four monthly film events from August – November 2017. The first film will be selected by the group from three options (see Your Application section), whereas the following three film screenings will entirely co-curated by the Fresh Perspectives group.
Participate in eight tailored Peer Group sessions, facilitated by Fabrica Film Club. Members will have a supportive and relaxed environment to share their knowledge, skills and ideas. The group will receive valuable input and advice from specialist guest speakers who will illuminate different aspects of successful film programming. One session will be a group outing to a movie screening of the group’s choice.
Peer Group sessions will take place at Fabrica approximately every two weeks, starting in August.
Gain professional development through hands-on experience, specialist guidance and peer support. This project will give you the skills to collaborate and realise your vision alongside people who are as passionate about film as you are.
