Knoydart - often referred to as "Britain's last wilderness" - has some talented young film makers among its inhabitants. Ten children aged between 4 and 11 have made a film which has been nominated for a National First Light Movies Award. The film, called MUNCHATREEAFOREST, was selected from over 100 films, and is now one of three films in the Best Film By Under 12's category. Munchatreeaforest is the only Scottish film in it's category.

The award is being decided by a Public Vote. The deadline for voting is 10th January 2008. Anyone can vote whatever your age, adult or child.

To vote email info@filmstreet.co.uk and say what you like about the film/why you think it should win.

Munchatreeaforest is about a forest regeneration scheme in Knoydart and the effect it has on the children's lives. The children care deeply about the forest and spend much of their time there. The film explores their hopes and fears about the destruction of the forest.

If you haven't seen the film it is available to watch along with the other nominated films at www.filmstreet.co.uk (you will need a high speed broadband connection) or contact Grant Holroyd at forest@knoydart.org or on 01687 462560 to get a copy on DVD.

Good luck to everyone who has entered the competition.
