Pupils got a thrill when they saw their film on the big screen.
Children from Ramnoth and Elm Road schools spent a week at St. Peters Lodge being shown all the skills involved in film making by Peterborough film maker Jessica West.
Their film, Not the Last Supper, received its premiere at the Luxe Cinema on Thursday.
Angie Manning, of St Peter’s Lodge, said: “The children learnt how to use film cameras, make films and then act out their own version of The Passion, The Easter Story.
“This was part of an on-going project we run at St. Peters Lodge, called Faith Through Art. Once a month, a group of children from each of the schools spend a week at the lodge learning various art forms.
