Tyneside Cinema Summer Film School

Join us for an exciting adventure at Tyneside Cinema!

Our Summer Schools offer brilliant opportunities for young people aged 8-16 to get hands-on experience in film and animation.

In our Filmmaking Summer School you’ll get to plan, shoot and edit short films in different genres before holding a world premiere for family and friends. This hugely popular week-long programme is a brilliant introduction to filmmaking.

The week starts with an introduction and welcome at Tyneside Cinema, then we’ll head over to our dedicated Pop up Film School just across the road.
