Teen joins stars on BAFTA night
Student interviews on the red carpet
HAYES teenager interviewed some of the biggest stars in the movie industry when she took to the red carpet at the BAFTAs.
Uxbridge College student Eronita Bequiri was chosen to report at the prestigious awards ceremony for Into Film, the education charity supported by the British Film Industry (BFI) through lottery funding.
The 17-year-old spoke to Patricia Arquette, who scooped best supporting actress for Boyhood, supporting actor winner JK Simmons (Whiplash) and British film director Amma Asante.
She has been involved with Into Film since its launch in 2014 and is a
ATJG1ST regular on the charity’s YouTube channel Get Into Film.
Eronita said: “I don't think I'm ever going to believe that I walked on the red carpet.”
Into Film is an education charity that seeks to put film at the heart of young people’s learning and promote the use of film as a powerful education resource.
Into Film Clubs are free for all state funded schools and non-school settings and offer free access to thousands of films and education resources about film and filmmaking for learning through and about film, as well as learning about the film industry and careers within it.
Eronita joined the Into Film Talent Development programme through her school film club and has since interviewed actors including Jeremy Irvine, Sir Ben Kingsley and Helena Bonham Carter and directors MohammadAli Talebi, Celine Sciamma and Jean-Pierre Jeunet.
Eronita took to the red carpet at the glittering Royal Opera House ceremony on February 8.
