Young movie fans visited a city cinema for the launch of a national film festival.
Around 50 students travelled to Cineworld, in Bentley Bridge, to attend the opening of the Into Film Festival, an annual national celebration of film and education for 5 to 19-year-olds.
The group, all members of Highfields’ Film Club from Years 7-10, watched Ready Player One, a fantasy adventure by Steven Spielberg that features scenes filmed in Birmingham.
The aim of the trip was to inspire their critical thinking and film analysis. They will each now write a film review which will be submitted to Into Film’s website for the chance of winning a prize.
