FILMAKERS from Selkirk will take centre stage next month after being nominated for an Into Film award.

Rowlands, an inspiring youth project, have been recognised by the Into Film Awards for the work they do in using film to bring young people together.

And the young buffs will get to rub shoulders with the likes of Martin Freeman, Gwendoline Christie, and Will Poulter.

Rowlands are nominated for Film Club of the Year, aged 13 and above.

Charlie Dawson has been running Rowlands film club for four years to encourage young people in the area to socialise and discuss a range of topical issues through film.

Recently they have screened films on the themes of LGBT History Month, Safer Internet Day, and International Women’s Day.

Film Club member Logan Fairbairn told us: “It means so much to us all to be nominated for an Into Film Award.

“Our club gives all the young people from Selkirk, and other towns in the Scottish Borders, a safe space where we can discuss issues and topics raised in film's we have chosen.

“I hope that Rowlands being shortlisted will highlight Into Film and encourage other schools and youth clubs to start their own Film Club.”

The Into film awards are an annual celebration of the best young filmmakers in the UK.

Since the launch in 2015, hundreds of talented young people and youth clubs have been recognised with nominations.

Blue Peter presenter Radzi Chinyanganya will be this year’s host with guest appearances from across the film industry.

Rowlands filmmakers will attend the fabulous award ceremony in London’s Odeon Luxe next month.

Joining them will be film clubs from all over the UK shining a spotlight on the next generation of filmmaking talent. Scotland nominees also include clubs from Fife, Falkirk and Aberdeen.

The winners will be announced on March 4 at the awards ceremony held in London.
