The Youth Cinema Foundation creates performance and moving image events to enhance the lives of young people.

Our mission is to create outstanding productions for and with young people and teach how to act in and “read and write” motion pictures. We teach 13-19 year old actors and 16-24 year old filmmakers.

Taught by an award-winning film director, young people learn the same skills taught to professional actors, artists and filmmakers, these skills are showcased in cinemas and art galleries.

We are a social enterprise aiming to inspire youth from all backgrounds to create and understand, rather than to only consume media, young people learn to understand this powerful medium and control it for themselves. 

All tutors who work with the Youth Cinema Foundation are DBS (CRB) checked.
