it's gonna be difficult as you can't do much with those camera. but try to get (and focus) as close as possible to your subject.

You can get bokeh with every camera and lens. Here are a couple of things to look for:

- Get as close to your subject as possible (and the camera/lens allows)
- Have as much distance between subject and background as possible
- Sensor size: the bigger the better (less dof)
- Use a long lens (wide angles produce less bokeh compared to tele lenses).
- use the widest aperture the lens offers.

With your camera, you will have to resort to 1, 2 and 3.

Since you're using 35mm film, you got less dof than most DSLR or compact camera users.
