Free film training

posted by: Administrator

WORLDbytes provides free ‘on-the-job’ film training for 16-25 year olds interested in creating alternative news programmes and reports. The next intensive course with spaces available is an unusual one as it’s specifically designed for volunteers wishing to join WORLDbytes crews filming the Battle of Ideas - a weekend festival of debates at the end of October. 

The training will take place over an intensive weekend on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 October at the Kingshold Community Centre in London E9. The weekend involves long days learning camera, lighting, sound, production and hands on shooting live debates for new volunteers and ‘top-up training’ for more experienced hands. No previous skills are required, but a keen interest in social issues is a must.

To take part in this opportunity you need to commit to filming at and attending the full weekend of the Battle of Ideas festival which takes place at the Royal College of Art on Saturday 30 & Sunday 31 October. Before applying you are advised to look at the Battle of Ideas programme 

The deadline for applications is Friday 1 October, but don’t wait around as places fill up fast. If your application is accepted, you will also need to attend a group interview on Monday 4 October at 7:30pm at the WORLDwrite Centre in Hackney, East London.

For an application form, or more information, email Saleha Ali, Volunteer Coordinator:, tel: 020 8985 5435
