CREATIVE film makers from Wigan and Leigh College will see their work screened at a leading national festival next month.

Students from the Leigh campus have two entries "A Life Cut Short" and "Out Now" which will be shown at Bradford's National Museum of Photography, Film and Television on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9.

The first video is a visual narrative set to music about a boy whose brother persuades him to take ecstasy.

Dramatic consequences lead to the boy being fed by his brother while in a vegetative state.

Adjudicators congratulated the 16-17 years old production team for a well done work which is very responsible in its approach.

The second piece is a short trailer about how people's lives are affected by drugs. The judges commented on "a competent piece showing a good understanding of the genre."

Now in its 33rd year the Co-operative Young Film Makers' festival attracted 230 entries from schools, youth groups and colleges, 103 have been selected for showing.
