BY YOUTH FOR YOUTH
GMAC Film’s Youth Team are a group of 16-25 year olds who meet monthly to consult and advise on the development and delivery of the youth programme at GMAC Film. They also take part in training, mentoring, production, volunteering and employment through GMAC Film, giving them new skills, friends, collaborators and real life experiences. The Youth Team has been going since 2014 and recruits new members every year.
The Youth Team also designs and runs it’s own programme of events throughout the year for young people aged 15-25. So far they have held screenings, networking events, practical filmmaking workshops and quizzes. They also help out with other parts of the youth programme, including the Junior Movie Club where they get to pass on their skills and experience to other young people who are interested in film.
