Budding film-makers and movie lovers can get involved in a new group at a city arts hub.

People aged 16-24 can join the free monthly film club at Cinema City's John Hurt Centre in Norwich.

Organised by the Cinema City Education charity, it is hoped the group will expose young people to independent film, offer industry advice and teach film-making skills.

Guy Martin, education manager of Cinema City Education, said: 'Film is an art form and the club is about young people having these skills so they can understand films in a wider sense.

'A lot of mainstream films dominate the cinema and we worry about the audiences of tomorrow for independent cinema.'
