Budding young filmmakers from Knowsley and Liverpool have been honoured at a high-profile screening and awards ceremony.

Other VIPs included Deputy Lieutenant of Merseyside Abi Pointing, Knowsley MP George Howarth and Knowsley Council Deputy Leader Cllr Mike Murphy.
In total around 400 people attended the event, including 120 of the young people who made the films - most of whom have learning disabilities and difficulties – and their families.
