Media Students with The London Film Foundation

The London Film Foundation

Films produced by Kensington and Chelsea College students are being aired in front of international ambassadors and politicians for a unique community project.

Several media students were hand-picked by The London Film Foundation to produce a series of short films, to help raise awareness about the work of five Moroccan charities.

The project – Be Inspired – was led by film director, and Chair of the London Film Foundation, Aziz Khalidi, who spent a month working with the BTEC Level 2 Diploma media students.

The students put their skills to the test and took on various roles including interviewer, editor, cameraman and presenter to successfully complete the project.

Speaking about the students’ involvement in the inspirational project, Mr Khalidi said: ‘They were great and showed real commitment to the project from the word go. The students were willing to work hard, come in on their days off and work late. They were fully involved in the project. I’m sure they will feel proud, as will I, when they see all their hard work come alive on the big screen for such a good cause.’

All five films are being premiered at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London, on Sunday July 8. The high-profile audience for the premier includes MP Sir Malcolm Rifkind, The Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, media and sports personalities and other dignitaries.

The evening is dedicated to showcasing the good work of the five charities at the heart of the project, as well as raising funds for them. All proceeds from the evening will go towards the five charities – Moroccan Children Trust, Moroccan youth Welfare, British Moroccan Society, Giving Chances and Friends of Targa School.
