FILM critics and producers of the future could soon be created in Shepley.
The village school is running weekly film show sessions and almost two years into the scheme it is just as popular as ever.
Between 20 and 30 Year Five children at Shepley First School attend the film club sessions each week.
The school was one of the first in the area to join the national scheme, which is backed by actress Emma Thompson and director Beeban Kidron, of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason fame.
Young filmgoers in Shepley have so far watched Kes, Simon Burch, The Railway Children and The Great Escape.
Last week children chose a black and white film Whistle Down the Wind.
Headteacher Tricia Jackson says the feedback from the club is positive as old classic films are not what the kids would usually see as they see all the new releases.
After the showing, children are encouraged to write a review which can appear on the Filmclub website.
Two years ago former student Millie Dickinson was named as reviewer of the week on the national website and she went on to attend premieres at Leicester Square in London and at Leeds Film Festival.
As one of the first schools locally to become involved in the scheme, it has been offered a £300 bonus for either a cinema trip for the whole school or to buy a popcorn machine.
Recent research shows that among other benefits, Filmclub improves literacy, increases confidence and integrates isolated or disengaged children.
To sign up, schools need to visit www.filmclub.org and click on ‘I want to set up a club - or call 0207 288 4520.
Filmclub was set up in 2006 by educationalist Linda Mackie and Beeban Kidron and a successful pilot took place in 2007.
It is funded by the Department of Children Schools and Families, with members having access to thousands of DVDs representing 100 years of cinema.
Actor Ewan McGregor said: “Filmclub is incredible. Through it children will be exposed to different worlds, new cultures and the limitless possibilities life has to offer.
“I made up my mind what I wanted to do when I was a young school kid – perhaps Filmclub will inspire children to decide what they want to do.”
