Film Producing in Wales

Chosen From Among The People

17 will screen as part of the young people’s strand at the Salford Film Festival this weekend – I’m particularly happy about this as it’s been selected by a panel of young people who are programming the strand of the festival themselves. What I hope this means is that the film deals with issues that they relate to, and that it’s relevant to those who are growing up here and now. Of course, they might just like it because it’s got swearing, violence and a banging drum n’ bass soundtrack, but I’d like to think that it’s more than that.

As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, the film doesn’t offer any answers or solutions to the problems it deals with, but I honestly believe it raises issues that lots of people growing up in Britain today have to face, and I hope that the young people of Salford are interested in the film because of this.

Thank you to the festival for selecting the film.
