Glenn delivers Masterclass at FilmClub Talent Development Festival

25 Jun 2012

Glenn delivered a series of masterclasses to young people on behalf of FilmClub, a charity he supports, for their Talent Development Festival at London's Tricycle Theatre.

Working with groups of primary and secondary school children from all over the UK, he helped prepare them for red carpet reporting at film premieres as well as presenting webcasts to over 7,000 schools (video highlights below).


Created by film director, Beeban Kidron in 2007, FilmClub provides children with free access to thousands of films and filmmakers to broaden their minds and increase their understanding of different worlds and cultures. The organisation works nationwide with over 250,000 young people aged 5-18, including students from some of the most deprived areas of the country with limited opportunities for real life experiences.

What you're doing at FilmClub is really amazing

Steven Spielberg, Director

Supported by BAFTA and some of the world's leading film directors, young people get access to film premieres, film stars and production talent and interview them for live programming broadcast weekly to children and teenagers all over the country.

Recent interviewees include George Clooney, Tim Burton, Hugh Grant, Helena Bonham Carter, Emily Watson, Robert Downey Junior and Steven Spielberg.

Glenn helped participants with their on-camera confidence, presentation skills, reporting and interviewing before an awards ceremony on the Tricyle stage celebrating the achievements of members over the past 12 months.
