First Light, a national film and media funding charity supports young people aged 5-19 to create their own film and media productions, with support from industry professionals.

They are running an advice and guidance seminar on 20th November at the Watershed Media Centre (1700-1830) as part of the Encounters Film Festival details of these events will be available on and
