Cambridgeshire Children and Young People's Film Festival 2013

5 Steps to the 2013 Film Festival

Follow us on Twitter @CYPFilmFestival

Follow the Children and Young People's Film Festival on Twitter @CYPFilmFestival

Open to both Primary and Secondary age groups, The Cambridgeshire Young People’s Film Festival began in 2008 and has enjoyed six successful years, with children and young people in the county creating their own animations and films and celebrating their achievements at the annual awards ceremony.

The film festival provides the focus and inspiration to encourage children, some as young as five, to use talk, drama and writing, photography, animating, shooting, directing and editing to produce some outstanding films.

Work in this area engages young people and contributes considerably to their overall literacy development in addition to planning, problem resolution, team work, art, design technology and a whole host of other associated skills.

This year’s entry deadline is approaching fast, so check out our 5 steps to the 2013 Film Festival below.  Be part of the action and your school children could be nominated and win one of this year’s Film Festival Awards!

Entry deadline for submissions was 4pm on Friday 31 May 2013

Reminder:  The Film Festival is open to all young people that live or are educated in Cambridgeshire.

Step Two - Make your film

Ensure your film meets the criteria for your age group, set out here, including the time limitations for each age group.
