Young people work with Buxton Film

Buxton Film is running a project to engage young people in the programming and marketing of films.

The project runs until March and will see a minimum of ten films selected for screening at the Pavilion Arts Centre, Buxton, by groups of young programmers.

Keith Savage, on behalf of Buxton Film, said, “We hope this project will draw people aged 16-25 into the work of developing audiences for film. The hope is that the project will help us build up groups of younger people who will then have a long-term interest in presenting films to wider audiences.”

High Peak students Neve Robinson, Sam Griffin and Josh King, who have chosen the first four films said, “We’ve chosen films with strong characters that you can identify with and with great soundtracks.”

Shaun of the Dead  can be seen on October 5; Billy Elliot October 19 and Withnail and I on November 3.

The project is being supported by funding from Film Hub North West Central.
