Film training comes to Petrolia, Watford


Teens who want to get a first hand look at film making will have a chance in April thanks to the Lambton Film and Food Festival.

Training for the Youth Film Competition will start in mid-April and, for the first time, the training will be offered in schools in Watford and Petrolia. Students are given five days of training with Brent Orr from the company Never Too Short to help prepare an entry into the film festival’s youth compeition.

“It is clear that the program enjoys broad community support. For many students, the training is one of their calendar highlights. For some, it is a means to test their interest and skills in a career in film. For others, it is a means simply to have fun, work on a team, and be creative with their peers,” says Scott Ferguson of the Lambton Film and Food Festival.
