Brian Blessed film to be screened
Two films directed by people from the borough with council funding will be screened during the London Film Festival 2012.
Both Santa's Blotto, starring Brian Blessed, and I-Spy, will be shown as part of the festival's London Calling Event.
Santa's Blotto, written and directed by Patrick Myles, tells the story of a seven-year-old boy who doesn't get the Christmas present he asked for and surprises Santa the following year.
I-Spy, filmed on location in Wandsworth, features eight-year-old Tom and his detective game in an abandoned building.
The film-makers secured funding for their project after applying to The Shorts Film Fund last year, which is run by the Wandsworth Film Office.
Mr Myles said: "I am extremely grateful for the support from Wandsworth Council, the Shorts Film Fund and Film London, without whom I would not have been able to bring Santa’s Blotto to life.
"I'm delighted that the film’s world premiere will be at the 56th BFI London Film Festival amongst other short films conceived and made in London."
The films will be screened on October 16 in the BFI Southbank at 6.30pm.
