STARRY-EYED young film fans can aim to become the next Steven Spielberg.

The Co-operative Young Film-makers' Festival plans to show 100 `amateur' films on October 14 and 15 at the Bradford Museum of Film, Photography and Television.

The films can be of any type, so long as they have been written, directed, produced or starred in by people aged under 21.

Films will be selected on their creative spirit and evidence of co-operation, but any issue or interest can be tackled.

Organiser Phaedra Patrick said: "This major national festival has helped showcase the talents of thousands of youngsters."

Organisers of the festival say anyone, with or without film experience, can submit a film.

Entries must be in by June 27.

More than 1,000 people are expected to attend the weekend.
