LONDON — Producer of James Bond films Barbara Broccoli has been appointed chair of First Light, the U.K. Film Council’s moviemaking initiative for children.
Under the 3-year-old scheme, lottery coin is handed out to thousands of youngsters to shoot shorts. To date, over 7,000 kids have taken part in making more than 450 films.
“I am delighted to have become part of First Light’s wonderful success story,” Broccoli said. “It has been quickly recognized as the best organization to help young people experience a first taste of filmmaking.”
