Come and join City Eye and the John Hansard Gallery for Film School fun, make friends AND learn how to make short films. Film School is a great opportunity for children of all ages and ability to have fun and get involved with filmmaking. During the October half term young filmmakers can come and be part of the cast and crew making their own films inspired by films showing at the Gallery, such as those by Imogen Stidworthy, as part of British Art Show 8 which comes to Southampton this autumn. We think Imogen Stidworthy's work will inspire an exciting exploration of the film noir, thriller and spy film genres.
Level 2 (age guide 12-16 yrs)
