Budding artists across the city can get involved in creating film-inspired works for an upcoming trail.

Worcester Film Festival and Artists Clubhouse have issued an artists' call for its third annual 'Lights, Camera…Paint' event.

The trail, supported by community funding from Worcester City Council, will showcase film-inspired artwork across the city centre throughout September.

This year, the event theme is 'Movie Mash-Ups', which will require participants to blend their favourite films to create unique artwork.

The competition is open for artists of varying levels, from beginners to professionals, and has a submission deadline of Friday, July 19.

Artists Clubhouse founder Emily Johnson said: "We aim to encourage everyone to get involved in creativity in some way as a benefit to their wellbeing, whether it's through seeing art, discovering and talking about new films with like-minded people or exploring being creative for themselves.

"All can be such a benefit for positive mental health."

A festival spokesperson said: "There is a place for every creative discipline in the process of making a film, I have seen that community come together, and that is really something special."

20 entries will be selected by a judging panel for the final art trail, while preference will be given to Worcestershire residents.

An extra five works will be produced by community charities, organisations and artists who use sustainable materials.

The artists' call out will continue until Friday, July 19.

The event will coincide with the festival, running from Wednesday 25 to Saturday, September 28.
