Attendees from the local commmunity and SRC at the Film Festival

Three short films were produced by the youth groups and are based on 3 key issues young people are faced with daily, these include; Social Media and Organised Fights, Stone Throwing and Careless Driving. On the night, those who attended The Omniplex Cinema were greeted by members of the Steering Committee whom were the lead in this project. Guests were guided to the screen via a red carpet entrance and greeted by some other young people who offered drinks and popcorn to enjoy whilst watching the 3 short films that have been produced. Following this, guests were then directed to The Miller Suite in The Canal Court Hotel where the after-show event took place.

The young people from the 9 Community Groups have been working tirelessly with the support of staff and students of the SRC Media and Performing Arts Departments.
