It’s the middle of the film awards season, so a school held its own glittering ceremony to celebrate its mini movie makers.

Central Street Infant School, Hebden Bridge, organised a Bafta style awards night and handed out gongs for various categories.

The event was the culmination of a film project children took part in with digital artist Hafsah Naib, of Working Class Films.

Sue Bladon, from the school, said: “The children were all involved in writing up storyboards and ideas for short films, involved in filming them and did all the artwork.

“We were going to have a celebration evening before the summer holidays but the school was flooded so we had to delay it until everything was up and running again.

“The children are all in year three now at another school so they had to come back.”

The event, which the school called the Haftas to link in with Hafsah’s name, saw prizes awarded for categories including best acting and best writing, and the audience voted for the best film.

“It was a really good evening,” Sue said.

“We screened the films. The children hadn’t seen them before.

“We had some really positive feedback.

“They all appreciated it.”
