Film talent is being showcased at a festival event

The event is an opportunity for people aged between eight and 25-years-old to share their original films in a competitive showcase.

It will be held at the Base Youth Arts Centre, Church Square in Scunthorpe.

The festival will kick off with a screening from the Tinpot Film Club on Friday with their film Submarine (certificate 15). It is a coming of age comedy that doesn’t let principles stand in the way of progress, starring Craig Roberts (Being Human) and Paddy Considine (Hot Fuzz) with original songs by Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys. Doors open 7.30pm for an 8pm start. Tickets are £3.50 or £2.50 for concessions. Refreshments will be available and there will also be an after show discussion.

On Saturday will be the screening of the shortlisted entries for the three categories – animation, fiction and documentary. Prizes will be awarded in all three categories for three different age ranges – eight to 11-years-old, 12 to 16-years-old and 17 to 25-years-old. There will also be special talks and presentations.

There will also be a fashion show with a 1950s and 1980s theme from Old School Clothing Company.
