MY Summer Of Love - which includes dance hall scenes from Brighouse's Ritz Ballroom - is one of the films nominated for a Bafta Award.
And those behind the film will find out on Saturday if they have been successful.
The big screen adaptation of the novel by Birmingham Post theatre reviewer Helen Cross has been put forward for the award.
My Summer of Love - a rite of passage tale about a tragic liaison between two adolescent girls - has been nominated for the Alexander Korda Award for outstanding British Film of the Year.
It is alongside Dead Man's Shoes, Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban and Shaun Of The Dead.
The film is based on the 2001 novel of the same name by Cross, a former Press officer at the Royal Shakespeare Company.
She said: "I think it's marvellous and I'm delighted for the cast and crew."
The film stars Natalie Press, Paddy Considine and Emily Blunt. Natalie was last night named British newcomer of the year for My Summer Of Love in the London Film Critics' Awards.
The film tells of a pair of Yorkshire teenagers from different ends of the social spectrum, who meet by chance and begin an intense and unlikely friendship.
Tamsin (Blunt) is tragic and fantastical, while Mona (Press) is rough and witty.
A spokesman for the production company said: "We are delighted the film has been nominated. It is set in Yorkshire and the dance hall scenes were filmed in Brighouse.We got a very warm reception when we were filming."
The Bafta Awards ceremony will be hosted for the fifth time by Stephen Fry and will take place on Saturday at the Odeon, Leicester Square.
They will be produced by Initial (part of Endemol UK) and broadcast on BBC1 at 8.10pm.
