YOUNG filmmakers will see their creations on the silver screen during an event in Clevedon on Monday.

Drama, documentary and animation shorts will be shown at The Curzon Community Cinema to round off a successful project involving youngsters attending The Barn and YMCA in Clevedon as well as Nailsea's Youth House.

As part of the Find Your Talent scheme, which is aimed at giving youngsters access to more creative and cultural activities, the people involved ranged in age from 11 to 21.

Film practitioner Pippa Robinson worked with them to develop ideas and tell stories through different types of filming.

The resulting films explore the idea of future dreams, the effects of drugs and stories related to the theme of identity.

The short pieces will be shown at the cinema from 5.30-6.30pm.

Volunteers from the group will be helping at the front of hour and tickets, priced £1 for adults and 50p for concessions, will be available on the door.
