A LIVE action British children's film that was shot in Bournemouth and Bridport is set to feature at the 59th BFI London Film Festival.

Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg - a story about four children on their 'boring' summer camp holiday - will get its world premiere at the prestigious event at the Haymarket Cinema on Saturday, October 10.

The film features Bonnie Wright - who played Ginny Weasley in Harry Potter - and a gang of children as they investigate who killed the camp mascot, Nelson Nutmeg.

Bonnie Wright said: “I really responded to the fact that it was a kids’ film for children. The script has the voice of a child coming through, and I remember often on family holidays wandering around, finding things to do, the crazy things that entertain children, and the imaginations that they have.”

The film has been written and directed by Tim Clague and Danny Stack and co-produced by Jan Caston.

Mr Clague, a BAFTA-nominated writer and award-winning director, said they were delighted to have been chosen by the BFI.

“This is an exciting premiere for our film,” he said. “We wanted to bring back British films for British kids. Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg is a contemporary story for today’s children, but it will remind mums and dads of the kind of films they watched as youngsters and hopefully get kids off their tablets and phones and encourage them to have an adventure.

“It’s not been produced by the Hollywood machine, it has been crowd funded by the British public and made as a real passion project – it epitomises our filmmaking heritage.”
