A fly-on-the-wall documentary which follows the daily lives of three Corby families is to be screened at the Odeon cinema in Kettering next week.

Corby Stories will be showing at the cinema on Monday (September 24) at 6.30pm.

The families featured were chosen following an advertising campaign and they agreed to be filmed at work and at home.

The film makers are a group of young people who had the opportunity to take part in all aspects of film-making and were mentored by experienced industry professionals from the UK Film School.

The behind-the-scenes footage allows the audience to see firsthand the crew working toward a shared goal. The documentary reflects the changing face of Corby and how the town is a vibrant exciting place where many people choose to live and work.

The project achieved its aims of providing young people with the opportunity to have work experience of the creative industry while showing what a great place Corby is to live.

Garry Halliday of UK Film School, said; “It was amazing to see how the young people and families collaborated together and trusted in each other to make this project a success.

“I’m very proud of what they’ve achieved.”

This project was carried out in partnership with Northamptonshire County Council, Youth Words CIC and the film school and was funded by LOTS Funding and with cash from county councillors Julie Brookfield, Bob Scott, Chris Stanbra and John McGhee through their empowering councillors fund allocation.
