Youngsters from the Isle of Sheppey's Bay Kidz Club and Cheyne Middle School receive a Highly Commended prize for their film "Seen But Not Heard" from Cllr John Morris (right) and former Cllr Trevor Fentiman, at the previous Awards.
The organisers of Kent Film Awards, part of this year's Swale Film Festival sponsored by 106.9 SFM, are inviting all local youngsters to make a movie during their summer holidays for the chance to win film making equipment and a trip to the world-famous Pinewood studios.
You can enter on your own or perhaps get together as a group ie: your school, youth group, church group or maybe even just a few friends. You can select any theme as a basis for your film and all you have to do is get hold of a camera, or If all else fails, why not just use your mobile phone. Get together and devise a script of five to ten minutes long. You may need help from someone to produce your final DVD.
There are two age groupings this year - Ages 10 to 15 years and Ages 16 to 21 years (or 25 for special needs groups).
There is also a third ‘open' competition which is for previously made films up to five minutes long. Entrants here can be aged 10 to 21 (or 25 for special needs groups) and there are no film theme restrictions.
