Budding filmmakers can create a story and further learn how to plan production, shoot, edit moving images and even design a film soundtrack at the three-day Digital Filmmaking Workshop.

Participants will experience games played such as paper craft, fly and hoop rolling, string games and spinners plus marbles, knuckle games and quoits.
