Call For Young Film Consultants!

Posted on 22nd February 2014 | Cinemagic News

Cinemagic has launched its annual call for 25 young film enthusiasts to take on the role of ‘film consultants’ and help select a series of films in Belfast in July, for the Cinemagic International Film and Television Festival programmes for Young People that take place in Belfast this autumn.

The Festival, funded by Northern Ireland Screen supported by DCAL, will include film screenings from around the world, filmmaking workshops, competitions, masterclasses and exciting film education events for young people. The Festival season will culminate with a gala awards ceremony where the winning films in the festival will be announced and young filmmaking talent recognised.

The young consultants will work with the Cinemagic team to help steer the choice of films for the Festival, as they watch and critique films from around the globe! If you are a budding film critic who would enjoy the opportunity to spend time working with Cinemagic, this is a fantastic opportunity to meet other likeminded young people and have fun deciding the content of the largest film festival for young people in the UK and Ireland.

The young people who become film consultants will also contribute ideas for the festival programme and help with the promotion of festival events. Cinemagic is dedicated to providing new and exciting opportunities for young people with all interests in film, whether they want to enjoy new films or take their interest further and explore career options in the film industry. The young film consultants will have the opportunity to watch and review international films guided by the Cinemagic team and there will be lots of opportunities for discussion and debate.”

Applicants aged 8-11 and 12-14 and 15-18 with a keen interest in film and the enthusiasm to work within a group should apply by downloading the registration form from www.cinemagic.org.uk and posting/emailing it to Cinemagic to explain why they would like to be a Young Film Consultant. Young consultants will meet from 21st-28th July, with specific dates for each age group.
