A 10-minute film about a magical old bookshop which stars a duo from the Maidenhead area has been named as the best film at Twickenham Alive Film Festival 2013.
Grace Alington, 19, from Courthouse Road, and Desborough College pupil Joseph Moore, 14, from Bray, played a brother and sister in The Magick of Twickenham which was filmed over Christmas and New Year.
It was made by Grace's uncle Toby Alington, who runs specialist sound recording and film company Richmond Studios.
Grace, who works as a gap year student at St Piran's School, said: "It was really exciting.
"I've never experienced being on camera before."
The film was handed the Festival Award as the overall winning entry at a ceremony at Twickenham Stadium on April 26.
