Young film makers from across Lincolnshire will have their works celebrated at an awards ceremony in Lincoln next week.

Acclaimed actor Jim Broadbent – patron of the LAFTAs Film Awards — will be on hand to witness the achievements of the localfilm makers of the future at the Engine Shed in Lincoln on Monday, October 20, 2014.

The LAFTAs Film Awards showcases and celebrates the work of pupils in Lincolnshire who have been involved in film making in school.

This year’s awards will feature more short films and animations than ever before, including for the first time submissions from overseas.

Councillor Mrs Patricia Bradwell, Executive Councillor for Children’s Services said, “This event is a great opportunity to recognise and celebrate so many of our talented young film makers here in Lincolnshire.

“The success of these awards shows how dedicated and committed we are to supporting the development of creative skills in our young people.”

The LAFTAs Film Awards Ceremony is in partnership with Warner Bros UK, The BFI and Disney.

The LAFTAs is supported by several supporters who contribute equipment to winning schools to support film making and engagement with creative media arts in Lincolnshire’s schools.

Winners will be announced on the night and will take home a unique trophy designed and manufactured by the pupils of Birchwood Junior School with the help of internationally renowned sculptor Roger Lee.
