Are you interested in making your own films?

Are you 12 – 25 years old?

Do you have a story to tell and want to find creative ways to express yourself?

If so yes, the YWFA Saturday Club could be perfect for you

We provide a safe space for girls and young women to meet, chat and learn about film. Whether you’re interested in a career in media or film or want to learn more about filmmaking techniques, our team can help.

And don’t take our word for it this is what some of our members have said about the club.

Young Women’s Film Academy is:

  •   “a safe space where I can build my confidence and make new friends”.
  •   “an opportunity to learn about filmmaking and routes into the industry.”
  •   “a judgement-free environment to experiment, collaborate and explore my creative ideas. “

So, what exactly happens at Saturday Club?

Our film mentors are skilled in supporting young people tell stories in your own language and style.

In the Saturday Club you will meet with other young women to collaborate on a range of different film projects from documentary to narrative shorts. You will learn more about scriptwriting, acting, editing, directing, sound production and photography, and have the opportunity to put these skills into practice.

Come and join us on alternate Saturdays 11-1pm at Newcastle Arts Centre.

From January 2024 there will be a new group for 16+ young women, ‘Future Lasses in Film’ running alternate Tuesdays 6-8pm at Newcastle Arts Centre, you can attend both the Saturday Club and the Future Lasses in Film group if you wish.
