Revolver Entertainment UK Partners On Film Education Program
Revolver Entertainment UK is working with the BFI Film Academy Network in a film education program for young people in the UK. Over the next four months, Revolver will work with BFI and partners Bafta, Creative Skillset and Pinewood Studios on the program aimed at educating 500 teens (ages 16-19) about film. In addition to the cultural program and master classes, participants will be encouraged to develop their creative, business and commercial skills by working in teams of three (writer/producer/director) to make a one-minute promotional campaign film to raise £5,000 on the Kickstarter platform to fund their future film.
