The North Yorkshire's Deer Shed Festival team have just announced their theme for 2016. From Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th July 2016 Deer Shed will be making a movie.

This year saw tickets sell out, and next year's weekend celebration of cinema and filmmaking will see a film made titled Monsters VS. Machines and festival goers will be able to get involved in making it, whether it's taking a starring role, being an extra or finishing off the set – the Deer Shed website has details on how to join the crew.

Festival director Oliver Jones said, "We're going to make a movie! It feels like we’ve been planning it forever and we have some fantastic partners to help us. It’s very exciting and just a little bit scary!"

Oliver's youngest daughter insists that Deer Shed let it all go with some sing-a-long-a-Frozen too.

As well as this ambitious production Deer Shed will also be laying on loads more activities for the film buffs in their audience - exploring everything from story-telling to running acting workshops, learning to do accents, composing film scores and everything in-between.

The Deer Shed Festival will return for a seventh outing in 2016 with no acts confirmed yet. Deer Shed will also offer music, arts, science, comedy, cabaret, spoken word, theatre, literature, workshops, sports and swing ball that make the festival so special.
