A FILM made by young people about the dangers of smoking is in the running for a movie prize.

The film, Caitlin's Story, has been made by members of Spark Blaeynmaes, and will be voted for by both the public and a panel of judges, made up of film and tobacco control experts.

Winners of the Wales Cut Films 2014 short film competition, which is supported by smoking advice groups ASH Wales and The Filter, will be presented with their award at a ceremony to be held at the BAFTA headquarters in central London in early July. The competition asks young people to research smoking, make a short film about it for their friends, upload to the Cut Films website and share it on their social media.

Youth worker Rhodri Thomas, from Spark, said: "The film, based on a true story, has a hard hitting message about the dangers of smoking.
