Get involved in this engaging, hands-on workshop with professional film-makers and content producers, and ensure that your unique BookFlicks recommendations reach the widest audiences. BookFlicks is a youth-led project where you can create micro-short films about the books you love and share widely across social media. Bring your favourite book to showcase or be inspired by the Hay Festival Bookshop!
If possible, bring a smart phone and download CapCut (a free video editing app) to edit your BookFlicks film. If you don’t have access to a smartphone, we have a limited number that you can use. And don’t forget to bring your imagination!
Rural Media is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation comprising the award-winning Rural Media Charity and its trading arm production house, Rural Studios. Founded in 1992, the organisation works locally and nationally using film, media and digital arts to educate, influence change and celebrate rural life.
Please note: During the workshop, you’ll be encouraged to explore the Hay Festival site to capture the content you need for your book recommendation, before coming back to the workshop to edit the footage together. By choosing to book onto the BookFlicks Workshop, you are agreeing to this, on behalf of yourself or a person in your care.
