Your Voice 2024


A new filmmaking project with young people in Mansfield

Fifth Word, in collaboration with Mansfield Palace Theatre and Mansfield Town Film Festival, is proud to launch Your Voice 2024. 

Your Voice will work with a group of young people aged 14-19* in Mansfield (*or up to 25 if you identify as having a disability) to lead them in a series of free filmmaking workshops led by professional artists Sophie Ellerby and Michael Jobling.

Young people will develop creative skills and explore the stories they are passionate about telling. They’ll gain experience working alongside industry professionals and be offered hands-on filmmaking experience to help develop practical knowledge and skills.

At the end of the programme, the young people will create their own films that will be screened as part of the Mansfield Town Film Festival on 26-28th July!

Free food will be provided every week, and travel bursaries are available for every participant!
