Budding film-makers had a taste of the red carpet at Richard House Children’s Hospice’s Oscars ceremony.
Members of the Beckton hospice’s film club showcased their work to friends, family members and special guests.
Bernie Wighton, creative media family support worker, said: “The Oscars are a celebration of creativity.
“It allows children to express themselves in a way that they wouldn’t be able to do outside of Richard House.
“Through film they are able to explore their creativity, build self-esteem and develop a voice to tell their very own personal stories.”
As well as premiering films they have spent the past year working on, the youngsters were given trophies for their hard work.
