A Clevedon school has seen a film made made by pupils win a prestigious award.
A FILM made by Clevedon primary school pupils has landed an award at a national film festival - for the second consecutive year.
The Dangerous Dictionary, which tells the story of a boy who discovers a dictionary in which words come to life, beat off competition from around the country to secure the Grand Prize for Most Outstanding Film at the Kids for Kids UK Film Festival, held at London’s prestigious British Film Institute.
The film, made by youngsters at Yeo Moor Primary School, was shown in the Live Action section of a programme of films made by children aged six to 12 throughout the country, including two more North Somerset schools - Westhaven in Weston and Ravenswood in Nailsea.
They were taking part in the Start programme, a three-year film project developed by Cathy Poole, formerly of the Curzon cinema, and funded by The Princes Foundation for Children and the Arts.
Cathy, project manager, said: “The children came up with a great storyline and went the extra mile to ensure that the film was the best it could be.”
This is the second year running Yeo Moor has won an award, after the school’s 2013 production, The Magic Tyre, won the Youth Jury prize for Best Live Action 6-12 last year.
