KNIFE CRIME

FILMS BY

JUNIOR FILMMAKERS

KNIFE CRIME FILMS

With funding from L&Q foundation, Junior Filmmakers worked with young people to produce a range of films that tackle the issue of knife crime in our local community. Specialised film trainers from Junior Filmmakers worked alongside the young film practitioners and helped them create the productions.

Following the production of the films, Thames Valley Police and Milton Keynes Council funded the creation and development of this website to make the films and accompanying educational information available to all schools in Milton Keynes to serve as teaching aids for teachers and young people.

The below are the aims of the project:
