This year there are eight entrants from Walthamstow, three of which are dominating the under 18s category. This includes a film about a lost teddy bear by Ruby Moore, who attends a Waltham Forest primary school.

Walthamstow resident Tom Bloor has been nominated in the animation category with Jelico’s Despatch, a puppetry folklore tale; and Carol Gyasi’s documentary Kayayo investigates the phenomenon of women and girls traveling south in Ghana to find market work, often in backbreaking conditions. Kayayo is a trailer for the film of the same name. 

Experimental film Ghar by South Woodford-based filmmaker Hassan Vawda features his Indian grandmother and in the same category, Boyhood by Otis Tree explores a nostalgic family journey and his early relationship with film.
