Toothpix film gets screening at Bang! Community short film festival

Earlier this year, Owen Tooth helped a group of young people make a film with their parents. The project was over six weeks and took place at QUAD, Derby's centre for art and film.

The film 'The Lost Boy', a story of an adopted boy's search for his real mother and his revelations about what matters in his life, has been selected for screening by the Bang! Short Film Festival in Broadway Cinema, Nottingham on 28th November at 6pm.

The competition had over 300 entries and has been narrowed to a ninety minute compilation, so Owen and the rest of the team are thrilled to see it has been selected.

The film was made with Engage, a Lottery funded scheme to encourage family learning across Derby City to family members at risk of offending or re-offending.

In the last week, Owen's short film 'Effigy' has had two festival screenings; one at QUAD Derby Short Film 2009 and one at the MAYHEM 2009 horror festival in Nottingham, to great response.
