"The Co-operative Film Festival is a non-competitive and not-for-profit youth initiative run by The Co-operative to encourage young people to co-operate, develop creativity and express themselves. It is one of the longest running film festivals in the country and a huge celebration of young people’s creative film-making! It’s been going for a massive 45 years, which means we’ve been showing films made by young people for nearly half a century." [Co-op Film Festival Website]

Similarly to last years Festival, a number of students from our School were having their work screened. The screenings were again impressive and again gave everyone inspiration for it to be their work that is screened there next year. As well as watching the screenings, we also had chance to look around the museum at a wide range of different media related items, practice/use more advanced media equipment and partake in a number of activities such as workshops.
"This year there'll be two very special guests at the festival - James and Oliver Phelps, who play Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter films. Our stars will join budding young movie makers to officially open the event by cutting the ribbon outside the main entrance." [Co-op film festival website]
