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?
