Happy New Year! 

 Owing to the latest Covid-19 restrictions, we’re postponing the start of the Spring Term of filmmaking classes.

We’ll update as we know more and we’ll contact film class members directly.

We look forward to welcoming young filmmakers back to classes soon.

Stay safe… 

The Team at Sparks 💜

Welcome to Sparks…

Our film schools for children and young people offer inspiring programmes of filmmaking classes, holiday camps and workshops for ages 5-18.

We support young filmmakers to develop their creative talents, grow their skills and express their ideas. Along the way, we boost confidence, nurture creativity and instil a wealth of valuable skills including teamwork and communication.

“The perfect place for any young person with the first spark of a love for film, a fully-fledged passion, or who just wants to express themselves creatively.

My son has relished every second he’s been going, and while it’s embarrassing to be jealous of your own child, on this occasion I have to admit that I am.”

Danny Leigh, parent and film critic
