A PIECE of Tinseltown came to Filey School for one night only as it hosted a special red carpet film premiere, 2Gether Unique.

The red carpet was graced by posh frocks and dapper suits, and the school even had its very own Showgirls complementing the Hollywood theme.

The event was well attended by students, staff, parents and invited guests including Scarborough mayor John Blackburn and representatives from North Yorkshire County Council Access and Inclusion.

Headteacher Andy Dickinson said “I am incredibly proud of all those involved. ‘2Gether Unique’ is a high quality film that promotes a powerful and important message. We all have something to learn from the message and vision that our talented film-makers have portrayed.”

The night marked the end of a film making project to create a short film showing ideas on accepting and celebrating the differences in each other.

The 52 Students involved worked to the brief that it is ‘OK’ to be different, with six groups developing their own piece for inclusion in the film. The whole project from concept to completion was student-led and was made possible following a successful bid to Creative Partnership Project Hull.
