Framed Film Festival 2018

Framed Workshops

Two brilliant days of film, fun and workshops for the whole family.

A special weekend for budding film-lovers, enjoy exciting previews of new films, classic films, children’s cinema from across the world, as well as live events and free workshops and activities inspired by the films in the programme.

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult.

If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.


Free workshops

All workshops run 10am – 4pm.


The Character Corner
Make your own character from the films in the festival from Moomins to puffins, owls and giraffes with animators and artists Shelly Wain and Wendy Scott.


Sound Effects Workshop
Discover how sound effects are created for film with the School of Noise. Have a go at making your own unique sound track to some classic clips and watch it played back in our mini cinema with foley artists and musicians from School of Noise.

Book Stop
Chill out in our book area, relax and read all about film.


Animation Station
Animate your own characters using stop-frame animation. Take inspiration from the world around you and the films you see at the festival with animation specialists.


Also look out for art activities around the foyer for you to add your creations to, pick up and do or take home.
