Tyneside Cinema are proud to be leading the New Creatives programme here in the North of England, where we will support artists aged 16 to 30 to bring to their original ideas to life through film, audio or interactive artworks.

We are looking for talent of all kinds, from all backgrounds and all capabilities, applicants simply have to be between the ages of 16 and 30 and have creative ideas about the world today.

This is a unique opportunity for artists to create film, audio or interactive work based on their lives, their opinions, their experiences and this will come with the support and guidance of industry professionals.

Applicants can come from any artistic discipline.  They could be dancers, performers, musicians, writers, filmmakers, comedians, visual artists, illustrators, animators, poets, storytellers or games designers; or they could be something else entirely.
