Pilot Theatre are working with 17 year olds to tell the story of what it is like to turn 18 in 2018.

This is a video diary project that will enable participants to make a short film, supported over the year by industry professionals.

The shorts made during the project will form the basis for a feature film called Eighteen which will be shared at Film Festivals from autumn 2018 including at Aesthetica (York, UK) and Sedicicorto (Forli, Italy).

We are working with teenagers across the UK but we’ll also be working with teenagers internationally as online participants. Our international partners are Teatro O Bando (Portugal), Elsinor Teatro Stabile d’Innovazione (Italy) and the Sedicicorto Festival in Forli (Italy).
