Brit youth org seeks talent

Co-operative provides $813,000 for initiative

The Co-operative British Youth Film Academy has launched its latest search for the U.K.’s next generation of movie-making talent.

The academy, which provides a link between the film biz and media education, is holding auditions for the cast and crew for four full-length features, to be made over the summer break.

The move gives 14-25 year-old students the opportunity to work with professional filmmakers in a variety of departments.

The initiative is funded with a £500,000 ($813,000) grant from retail chain the Co-operative Group.
