Young Film Programmers and the Pandemic
Posted on April 9, 2021
Young Film Programmer’s Groups give young people a stake in venues and aim to increase younger audiences made up of their peers. Venues work with young people to help them run screenings and events in their cinemas, empowering them to conceptualise, develop and deliver their own programmes. But how do you continue this work when all venues are closed? We spoke with Shelby Cooke, Film Programmer and Editor-in-Chief at Film East, about how she adapted their activities to the online space and the valuable experiences being part of a YFP Group has given her, even during a pandemic.
