Young filmmakers in Redbridge premiered their short movies at a ceremony in central London.

Students from the BFI Film Academy, a UK-wide programme which teaches 16 to 19-year-olds basic skills to enter the film industry, presented their productions at the Rich Mix Arts centre, Bethnal Green, on Saturday to an audience of more than 100.

Victor Rasuly, 17, from Ilford, Aadam Ahmed, 16, and Jake Marx, 18, both from South Woodford, and Henry Moore, 17, from Woodford, introduced the short films – the result of three months of film making.

Ranging from psychological thrillers to intriguing drama and fantasy, the films Dona’s Diary, Repressed, The Key Within, Stolen and A Matter of Time, all had to include a key at the heart of their story.

The young filmmakers worked with the Eastside Educational Trsut, an arts education charity based in Hackney, where they met professionals from the industry and learnt a wide range of production skills.

Audience members were given the opportunity to vote for their favourite film and give advice and feedback to the students.
