YOUNG Ipswich people aged 12 to 17 dived headfirst into the world of film-making and shot their own short films this week.

The In the Bin Short Film Festival and Educational Program taught dozens of aspiring and amateur film-makers valuable technical skills and story-telling processes.

The three-day workshop ran from Tuesday to Thursday at Studio 188, with filming also taking place around town.

Finished short films will tell stories about life in the Ipswich community.

Participants will have the opportunity to present their films as part of the official In the Bin festival in, which will be held on April 10 as part of National Youth Week.

The workshop was one of many school holiday activities on offer around Ipswich, Youth and Seniors Committee chairwoman Sheila Ireland said

"There are a large number of activities planned ... with something for everyone," Cr Ireland said.
