Ever wanted to make your own films? Now you can with this practical 5-day programme that teaches the basics of filmmaking.

Put your creative mind to work by screenwriting, directing, acting, editing and sound recording. You will not be limited to only one role, and you will be guided every step of the way by industry professionals. Learning the 'language' of film is an important part of this programme, as is being creative with limited resources. It will be rewarding and lots of fun. At the end of the week you will have a film of your own creation that you can share with pride.

Plus, your films will be screened on the last day of the holiday programme to an invited audience. Get your family and friends to come along!

You will also be able to watch your film/s at home via a link that will be emailed the following week.

What better way to spend the holidays than being a film-maker?
