Next Stop Hollywood!

The Eclipse Cinema in Downpatrick on Monday night showed a double bill of locally made films. One of the movies “Downpatrick, Life in the 1950s – 1980s” was made entirely by clients of AMH New Horizons Downpatrick.

Pictured are clients from AMH New Horizons, Downpatrick, proudly displaying certificates which they received as recognition of completing Level Two CCEA Occupational Studies. The clients gained this qualification while making their film. All of the clients achieved a Grade ‘A’ in this qualification; a remarkable achievement and a fitting testament to how hard they worked on the film.  Well done to Stephen, Peter, Jonathan, Hilary and David for their dedication, effort and enthusiasm over the past year; next stop, Hollywood! 

The film has been supported and funded by the PEACE III Programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body and delivered by the North Down, Ards and Down District Council.
