A pupil from a school in Aldenham has been awarded a place on a film talent development programme.

George Kirby, who is in year 12 at Aldenham School, has been chosen for the programme that offers young people the opportunity to go behind the scenes in the film industry and develop skills in film reporting, reviewing and film making.

George said: "I was lucky enough to be selected from over 400 applicants and I’m really looking forward to taking part in the development programme run by Into Film."

The programme is run by Into Film, the BFI's film and media education charity.
