From the schools and streets of South London to the big
screen, the Lambeth Film Fiesta brings twelve short
films made by children and young people to the National
Film Theatre.  The films - which range from gritty
urban dramas to ghost stories and even a
Bollywood-style musical - were all written, shot and
performed by young people aged between seven and 21. 
The scheme - which was funded in part by First Light,
an initiative supported by the Film Council with
Lottery Funding - is all part of the grand plan to put
Lambeth on the map as a centre for new film-making
talent.
