Time for our young filmmakers to shine
SELECTED films produced by young people will be showcased at the Wangaratta Art Gallery this Friday night from 6pm.
The Youth Film Project exhibition, launched by Rural City of Wangaratta youth council deputy mayor, Naomi Luhan, celebrates the efforts of young people engaged in filmmaking as an art form.
Supported by the Kyamba Foundation, the opportunity offers professional exposure and engagement by screening budding filmmakers in a public gallery venue.
The project will also include experimental film-based workshops and pop–up screenings during the school holidays and summer period.
It has been programmed to align with the National Gallery of Australia’s exhibition, Light Moves: Contemporary Australian Video Exhibition, coming to Wangaratta Art Gallery from November 25 to February 4, 2018.
The project will appear at Gallery 2 of Wangaratta Art Gallery this Friday from 6pm to 8pm.
The screening and exhibition continues in the Gallery 2 until December 22.
