Join us for DIY Filmmaking Challenge Showcase: a celebration of some of the best films made by young, Northern filmmakers as part of DIY Filmmaking Challenge: Environment.

We're excited to head to Sunderland Shorts Film Festival for this showcase, taking place at Sunderland Museum from 17:00 on Saturday 21 October. Tickets are available on a Pay What You Feel basis and can be booked now.

At the end of summer, we challenged filmmakers aged 16-25 to make no-budget, micro-short films exploring stories of sustainability and belonging in response to the theme of Environment. At this event, we’ll showcase the shortlisted entries and announce the winning filmmaker, who will receive £1,000 development funding to make their next short.

The Showcase will be followed by a discussion with Chris J. Allen, Festival Director of Sunderland Shorts, and North East-based producer Zahra Zomorrodian.
