A BUDDING young movie-maker is to see her work screened at a film festival.

Ade Sanni’s film, Hold That Thought, will be featured at the Co-operative Film Festival, a national showcase for up-and-coming movie-making talent,

Ade, from Dagenham, says she’s delighted her six minute short was chosen from hundreds of entries.

Describing the film the 18-year-old added: “It about a boy who grows tired of the constant nagging from his girlfriend. She is always telling him off so when he plays on his X-Box he fantasises about controlling her with his remote.”

Ade completed a BTEC National Diploma in Media Production at Havering College this summer and is about to start her studies for a BA Honours degree in Film Production at Bournemouth University.

The Co-Operative Film Festival will be held at the National Media Museum in Bradford on October 7 and 8.
