YOUNGSTERS from across Hampshire are set to attend their very own film premier.

85 young actors aged five to 17 years old will arrive in a convoy of limos and walk down a red carpet at the Odeon in Port Solent before watching a screening of a short film that they created.

The youngsters created the film as part of the UK Film Academy which was set up 15 years ago by ex actress Louise Hart.

The film is called Film in your Shoes and it was shot on site at Redbridge community School and Noadswood School in Southampton.

It tells the fictional tale of a group of young people who set up a school radio station for pupils to air their issues and views on subjects like bullying and exam pressures.

Louisa Hart, the director of the UK Film Academy: "The film academy and creating films like this one gives young people the opportunity to learn about screen acting.

"There are a lack of opportunities for people to be involved in filming.

"This is a great way for children to build on their confidence and they can learn about working on the other-side of the camera as well as acting."

A mock television crew will also be at the cinema when the youngsters arrive.

Louisa said: "I want the kids to have the whole experience of the life of a film star."

The premier is set to take place on February 28.

Louisa added: "I would encourage kids to come along and get involved with the UK Film Academy as I think its important for kids to have friends outside of school."
