Talented Suffolk students enjoyed their own premiere at a special screening of a film in Ipswich.
While the world becomes transfixed with high-rolling box office hits, filmgoers gathered at UGC Cinema for a movie made by Belstead Brook students.
Making It is designed to raise awareness of the needs and desires of young people with special needs.
Producer Daniel Allum said: "It's been fantastic for me to work with these young people and I think they've really enjoyed themselves."
The project was the result of consultation between The Children's Society, Belstead School, special needs group ACE and young people's organisation Connexions.
