Young Electrics is a group of young people who meet at Sussex Coast College Hastings Campus on Thursdays 3 - 5pm during term time, to learn about cultural cinema, research film titles and plan cool film screenings, principally aimed at 16 – 25 year olds, but all screenings open to all.
Look out for events by 'Young Electrics Presents...' in the programme.
Below is a selection of film and moving image work created and curated by the Young Electrics. The shorts reflect a diverse and creative consciousness and explore a variety of themes through the medium of film. Viewer discretion is advised. We hope to screen the films at the cinema when we're able to open again post lockdown. You can see more of the group's work on the Art Hastings website.
Mid 90s skateboard-themed evening
In October 2019 the Young Electrics hosted a fantastic skateboarding themed evening of screenings, including Jonah Hill's debut film Mid 90s, plus a double bill of short films from local filmmakers about the Hastings skate scene. See a selection of snaps from the event on our Facebook page.
We'll update this page soon for details of our next Young Electrics screening.
Some good news - we've received some BFI National Lottery support specifically to develop our Young Electrics programming group offering! We look forward to sharing more on this with you soon if we are able to reopen post lockdown 2.
