signal starters celebration event

Films-in-a-Week 2018 - 2019 | Celebration 23.9.19

3 SHORT FILMS were created for our Signal Starters young filmmaker programme during 2018-19 by 58 young people (and 2 Young Mentors) from Barrow and the surrounding areas aged 8-11yrs. Through a series of half-day ‘tasters’ and ‘film-in-a-week’ workshops during school holidays, these talented young people created fantastic, insightful and conscientious animated shorts – most of whom had never done anything like this before.

These short films premiered on Monday 23rd September as part of a celebration event for the year-long Signal Starters programme, where the screening event for family and friends was also attended by Barrow’s Deputy Mayor, Helen Wall and Cumbria’s High Sheriff, Marcia Fotheringham.
