Filmmaking & Media Skills for 16-19 Year Old's

We'll back with more Get Digital courses early in 2023!


A really fun experience for meeting new people and doing something you love!

- Participant feedback

GET DIGITAL is a FREE filmmaking and creative digital media short course for young people aged (15 – 20 years or up to 25yrs LDD/SEN). 

In 2023 we’re hoping to to be back with two programmes of activity; one with an arts & creative digital media focus – and another with a filmmaking focus.

Designed to build up your confidence and technical skills through filmmaking it’s led by fantastic professional artists and filmmakers. Get Digital has been successfully running for the last five years, working with young people from all across Barrow and South Furness.

You’ll learn brand new skills in filmmaking & creative digital media (or build up any existing ones).

No previous experience necessary! Just a passion to learn & a willingness to be involved!

Past projects have tackled a variety of different subjects, as students use the medium of film to explore issues young people face around homelessness, mental health, hate crime and autism awareness. Over the past few years Get Digi has brought together young people so we can help empower each other as a team and co-create great ideas and collaborations to produce inspiring short films!
