Tyneside Cinema is on the hunt for budding young filmmakers to say something about the world around them, as applications open for its sixth annual Northern Stars Documentary Academy

Documentary Academy runs on Saturdays from August to December 2018 and anyone aged 15-19 across the North East can apply. The programme is completely free of charge and no previous filmmaking experience is required –just the desire to say something about the world you live in.

Successful applicants are supported by a professional filmmaking team, working in small groups to plan, shoot and edit short documentary films, before seeing their work on the big screen at Tyneside Cinema at a premiere event for family and friends.

All the finished films are entered into awards and festivals as well as being available online for participants to link to, for instance on their CVs.

Previous films have won numerous awards and been screened at festivals both at home and abroad, and participants have used their experience from the programme to gain a place at college or university, or as part of a portfolio to get work in the film industry.

Applications for Documentary Academy 2018 are now open.
