Youngsters from Kettering are looking forward to seeing themselves on the big screen at a film premiere tonight.
UK Film School CIC and Inspiring Neighbourhoods CIC are holding a VIP screening of their latest film project at the Odeon in Kettering.
The film documents Inspiring Neighbourhood’s Little Ambassadors at St Andrew’s School, capturing the impact that the project they were involved in has had on the school and the area.
The children were involved in the processes of raising £49,000 for improvements to transform their local park in a community project spearheaded by Inspiring Neighbourhoods.
Brenda Easton from Inspiring Neighbourhoods said: “UK Film School have worked in collaboration with Inspiring Neighbourhoods bringing their expertise and creativity to create a film that is interesting, providing all involved with a great experience.
“The children are all excited that they will see themselves on the big screen, a unique opportunity that UK Film School has provided.
