Screen Northants are looking for young people who want to make and star in their own films.

In Spring 2019, Screen Northants are running their first film festival based in Northampton featuring the work of young people aged 16 to 25 years old.

The film company, based in the Grosvenor's Centre, wants aspiring movie makers to come forward with their Hollywood ideas - especially if they have 'something to say about Northampton'.

Workshops will start in January, with filmmaking activities in February, with the festival itself in March.
