Sikh-ing stars for documentary

DOCUMENTARY filmmakers are looking for young Sikh people in Woolgoolga and the surrounding Coffs Coast region to feature in a project.

The documentary aims to provide an insight into the lives of Sikh youths growing up in an agricultural setting, with a particular focus on blueberry farming.

Filmmakers will be in the area this weekend to scout for characters and locations, as well as to conduct preliminary filming.

Production manager at inDiVisual films, Barbara Harvey, said young people with a story to tell were encouraged to get involved.

"We're looking for people aged 18 to 32, maybe some people who have left the area and come back, or anyone willing to talk about their experiences as young people in that setting," Ms Harvey said.

"We'd like to find some standout young people or people doing something interesting in the community."

Meet and greet sessions will be held on Saturday at Woolgoolga's Bollywood Beach Bazaar and Sunday at Woolgoolga's Guru Nanak Gurdwara, where those looking to be involved in the film can meet with the director and crew.
