Aspiring young film-makers have the chance to prove they could be the next Hitchcock, Spielberg or Tarantino this October half-term.

Movie enthusiasts between the ages of 16 and 19 are being invited to take part in an exciting five-day film challenge in Great Yarmouth over the autumn break.

Starting on October 24, the course will give passionate teens the opportunity to develop skills and learn techniques to help them build a career in film-making.

Organised by Norwich-based arts group Culture Works East, the program will be held at the Priory Centre and is the first part of the British Film Institute's Academy, for which applications are now open.

Participants will be trained in a number of different aspects of film, from writing and directing, through to production, editing and camera work.

Culture Works artistic director Elli Chapman said: 'This is a great opportunity for any young film-maker who is already developing their film work as part of education or in their own time and is considering a career in any part of the industry.
