BBC Norfolk Children and Young People's Film Festival
Children look a globe
The children's film festival runs until Saturday, 31 July

The BBC Norfolk Children and Young People's Film Festival launches on Monday, 19 July 2010.

The two-week showcase will host the county's best young film-making talent on a screen at The Forum, Norwich.

The festival offered under 18s in Norfolk a chance to submit their films, with around 140 entries received.

More than 40 films have been selected for the show at Fusion, which houses Europe's biggest permanent digital screen.

It's the first year the festival has been held, organised by BBC Voices, a media workshop and production unit based at The Forum.

BBC Voices producer Gary Standley said: "Too often this talent is seen only by fellow students and proud parents.

"Now everyone will be able to see the way our young people choose to express their lives, their feelings and their sense of humour too."

A glimpse of the film world will be revealed in Norwich during a three-day hands-on event between Sunday, 25 and Tuesday, 27 July from 10am to 4pm.

Youngsters can enter the magical realm of Narnia through a wardrobe, film wildlife with the experts and saunter down the red carpet.

The festival will run from 10am to 5pm daily between Monday 19 July and Saturday 31 July, and entry is free.
