UNLOCK Film Festival – Live Premiere Film Screening

This is the premiere film screening of four brand new short films written, directed, and produced by young people in Yorkshire. Over six weeks during a summer of social distancing and local lockdowns a group of four young people have worked with Chol and local film maker Sean Lovell to tell their stories through film.

This is the premiere of each of these films followed by a chance to ask the young people and members of their creative teams questions about the process and their experiences. The Zoom webinar will be hosted by two of the fabulous young festival producers and will be streamed live on Facebook. The event will close with a screening of a short documentary by Sean Lovell, sharing ‘behind the scenes’ footage of the young people’s experiences creating UNLOCK Film Festival 2020.
