Random Acts North: Creative Futures


FRI 28 – SUN 30 JULY

This two-day training and development event for young artist filmmakers features masterclasses, workshops and panel talks with a range of professionals from the film and art world.

Over the weekend you’ll learn how to kick-start your career, build a successful professional profile, and develop skills in producing and directing new moving image work for the screen.

Creative Futures is aimed at alumni of the Random Acts short film programme and is also open to filmmakers and artists aged 16+ interested in working with the moving image.

The event coincides with the arrival of the Random Acts: Playback exhibition at Tyneside Cinema, showcasing over 200 bold and daring short films from across the country produced as part of Arts Council England and Channel 4’s Random Acts initiative.

Confirmed speakers at Random Acts North: Creative Futures include Channel 4 Random Acts editor Catherine Bray, Hackney-born spoken word poet Solomon O.B, leading drama specialist and director of The Television Workshop Ian Smith, and This Is England dialogue editor Susan Pennington.
