Film School - become a filmmaker in a day

Ever fancied having a go at making your own film but didn’t know where to start? Film School is for you.

On Saturday 9 March Stroud Film Festival invites you to our very own Film School. Tutors Andy Freedman and Amanda Whittington will help you develop your skills and show you how to devise, shoot and edit a short video. Explore ways of telling stories through camera angles, sound and editing techniques. No experience required and equipment provided.

And then after the workshop why not take part in the 60 Second Film Challenge? We ask the people of Stroud to devise, shoot, edit and upload a short film in one day. This year's theme will be announced at 8am on Saturday 16 March, and completed films will need to be uploaded by midnight on Sunday. Selected films will be screened at This Is Stroud at Lansdown Hall, Friday 22 March.

Sue McKillop made her debut film It’s A Hard Life after taking part in 2018 on the theme “cold water”.

“Really enjoyed the Film School last year… lots of help and encouragement for a novice film maker like myself. We each shot and edited our own mini film in a just a few hours which gave me the confidence to enter the 60 Sec Film Challenge. A very valuable and enjoyable day!”
