‘Boy Soldiers’ is selected for the Imperial War Museum film festival!

'Boy Soldiers' 2012

‘Boy Soldiers’ 2012

My award winning short film ‘Boy Soldiers’ has been selected to screen at the Imperial War Museum Film Festival this autumn. It will screen 5 times at IWM London from Oct 30th to Nov 8th before heading to IWM North later in the year.

The film was workshopped, written and produced with the cast aged 10 – 14yrs at PQA Aylesbury in just a few days and has since gone on to film festival screenings, nominations and awards including winning Best Film at the 2013 Limelight Film Awards.

It follows the story of a young teenage boy who is transported back to the trenches of Passchendaele in 1917 to discover what life as a Boy Soldier was really like. A poignant and moving film which, whilst not technically perfect, features strong performances from the cast and has resonated with audiences across the country. It is fitting that it has been picked up to screen at IWM in this 100th year since the outbreak of WW1.
