Determined to Make Movies Awards 2016

Schools across the city recognised for their filmmaking, presenting and design skills.

The stage was set, the red carpet dusted down, the glad rags looked out and it was time for the young people from 20 schools across the city to head to their movie award ceremony last week at Cineworld at Silverburn.

This was the 16th annual Determined to Make Movies awards - an initiative that gives Glasgow's young people the opportunity to explore and develop their filmmaking skills.

Categories & Winners

The primary and secondary schools have written, produced, filmed and starred in their own five minute movie and winners were announced on the day in the following categories:

•    Best Drama - High Park Primary/All Saints Secondary
•    Best Documentary - St Roch's Primary/All Saints Secondary
•    Best Actor/presenter/ Best Actress Presenter - Toryglen LCR - Callum Fullerton/ St Roch's PS & HIU - Chloe O'Neill & All Saints Secondary  - David Robert Kerr
•    Best DVD designer - St Paul's PS & Scotstoun PS/Notre Dame High
•    Best business partnership in both Primary and secondary - St Fillan's Primary/Holyrood Secondary     

Bailie Liz Cameron, Executive Member for Children, Young People & Lifelong Learning was on hand with the gold envelopes to reveal the winners and said: "This is an amazing opportunity for our young people and budding film makers.

"The standard of the movies are so professional and I'm sure it has been really difficult to decide on the winners.

"The young people are learning important skills that will easily transfer into the workplace.

"It was like attending a mini Oscars at Cineworld!"
