Cineclub, The Young Filmmakers Network is a mini-studio system, where children learn to become proficient low budget filmmakers on a sustainable basis. Cineclub is about learning from mistakes and risk taking.
They are recruiting for a small number of filmmaking
facilitators within the North West area (incl. Liverpool and
Manchester) who wish to join their expanding
organisation. The regional facilitators will
train children and teachers in low budget film production,
including all pre-production, production and post production
activities. These workshops range in duration from 1 day projects
to after school clubs, which run one afternoon a week for one or
two schools terms. The Cineclub network includes young filmmakers
from primary schools, secondary schools and youth

Their filmmaker projects are run as after school clubs, one day workshops and week long summer projects, working with a range of children from primary and secondary schools but also with a range of disabilities and challenging behaviour groups.
Work is on an ad hoc basis. Payments are as follows: £60
