Professional film-maker, Martin Steed, will return to The Core at Corby Cube next week to lead the popular Film In A Week project.

Youngsters aged 10 to 16 will have the chance to make their own short film in five days, learning all the skills they need to script, shoot and edit. They will then enjoy a premiere screening with friends and family on Friday, August 23.

A short film made by participants in the project last summer was shortlisted in the under-16s category of the Film Northants 2012 competition and later went on to win the Positive Activities Group ‘Visual Arts Award’ in November 2012.

Film In A Week will start on Monday, August 12, with sessions running from 10am–5pm, for five days. The project costs £60 per participant. To book a place, call 01536 470470. A limited number of bursaries are available for those in financial difficulties. For details, email getinvolved@thecorecorby.com.

Other summer projects will include Play In A Week, in which children aged from eight to 12 will perform Alice In Wonderland. This will run from Tuesday, August 20 until Friday, August 23. For more info, see www.thecorecorby.com
