Solar Powered Film Making Workshops
10–14 Aug 10am & 1pm

Improve your film making skills and learn about solar powered films.

Young people aged between 11 and 19 are invited to an exciting new solar cinema event at the National Waterfront Museum.

The unique mobile solar powered cinema has been created by Undercurrents with the help of local artist Jo Furlong and will be showing clips from the documentary - A Surfer's Guide to Climate Change.

As well as screening films, the Undercurrents crew will be hosting free workshops teaching media skills such as camerawork, sound recording and interviewing. Participants will also have an opportunity to question local people about their views on how to bring about a sustainable Wales in a live studio set-up.

The programme of workshops will run from Monday 10 to Friday 14 August.

The Welsh Assembly Government has sponsored Undercurrents,the Swansea-based filmmaking collective to run the workshops in line with their new policy calling for Wales to be a One Planet Nation. After a successful event for 400 young people at the Liberty Stadium in July, Undercurrents are planning a series of workshops for young people across Wales.
