our Lowestoft Film Festival young ambassadors group is for young people aged under 25.
Participants in our Ambassador group will get to directly engage with the film festival organisers and get experience and direct involvement on working on a film festival, and associated events across the year run by Sunrise Studios.
Ambassadors will get a VIP pass that will give them access to all screenings, workshops & events during each festival, as well as a coveted certificate at the Lowestoft Film Festival Awards ceremony.
Roles range from watching and reviewing films, marketing/taking over our social media, blogging and planning events.
Further information for when and where the ambassador group meet will be given on application.
If you’d like to join please email or complete our application form.
This strategy has been developed in response to the British Film Institute’s current five-year plan (BFI2022), which focuses on the future of film in the UK and emphasises the importance of engaging 16-25 year olds with independent cinema to build the audience of the future, as well as future participants in the industry.
Young Film Programmer’s Groups give young people a stake in venues (in our case this is the Lowestoft Film Festival) and help to increase younger audiences of their peers, who may otherwise be generally disengaged from non-mainstream cinema.
