Apply now for HOME’s Young Film Collective

HOME are excited to announce the launch of the HOME Young Film Collective. A 12 month film programme open to 16 - 25 year olds, based in Manchester and Greater Manchester.

Every month the Young Film Collective will meet for free film workshops covering everything from practical filmmaking skills, film theory, film reviewing, distribution and more. The year long programme will also include film screenings, industry talks and will culminate in the making of a short film.

The group will also become HOME’s resident Young Programmers, learning how to curate a film programme with guidance from HOME’s programming team, and the opportunity to programme up to 4 films to be shown in HOME’s cinemas.

Please see below dates for the collective. Weekend sessions start between 10-11am and will finish no later than 5pm. Evening sessions start between 5.30-6.30pm and finish no later than 8.30pm. Exact timings will be confirmed nearer the time. There will be additional dates for you to attend for special screenings, networking events etc.
