The CatStrand, New Galloway, are looking for talented workshop leaders for a 3-day filmmaking project this summer. The project will involve working with a group of up to 20 young people to create a short film inspired by the outdoor sculptures recently installed in the Galloway Forest Park; the Giants in the Forest . The film will be presented at an outdoor screening event in the forest later this year.
