A BUDDING filmmaker in the Shire of Kalamunda has already received accolades for her film directorial debut.
Gooseberry Hill student Lily Boisvert (11) wrote a short film called One Time Too Many about bullying.
The budding filmmaker made her film with friends from Mary’s Mount Primary School in the school holidays last year.
She decided to enter her short film in the Kalamunda Shire-run Jam Packed Film Festival for youth.
The festival showcased short films created by talented young filmmakers, providing an opportunity for them to be screened to friends, family and the wider community.
One Time Too Many was chosen to be screened at the festival and received a ‘highly commended’ award.
The film was also entered in the Cause Film Festival in NSW, which aims to support charities, good causes and at the same time give budding filmmakers the opportunity to assist in promoting the charity or cause that they support.
Lily chose the Alannah and Madeline Foundation to support its anti-bullying stance.
Lily received the best film by a junior award at the Cause Film Festival in Sydney on September 24.
Lily’s mother Chelsea said her daughter had a big future ahead of her as an actor and director.
