National Youth Film Festival – Best Film Club Entry
I have copied these words from the Film Festival site. A Film Club is defined as more than one young person meeting regularly to watch, discuss and/or make film together for young people aged 5-19 years in the UK.
What makes a good film club?
There is no one way to run a successful club and there are lots of different ways that this can be measured. It is key that young people receive a rich experience of film. A combination of one or more of the following would be deemed a great club:
- Integrating watching, making and understanding film in the club
- Interesting film choices
- Inspirational leaders
- Inspirational members
- Regular and consistent membership
- Regular screenings
- Regular reviewers
- Making a difference to the lives of members (including young people with disabilities, behavioural problems, poor attendance or poor engagement with learning
- Running a successful club in an otherwise challenging setting
- Skill development
There are 2 questions that need to be answered – 100 words max for each question:
What makes your club great?
Why should your club win this award?
