Film Premiere 2021
Our Screen Academy Company members walked the Red Carpet to the cheers the deserved last month, as they attended the premiere of their very own film. The company wrote, directed, shot and starred in their very own film; Dame Samantha Priestley Academy; The Untold Story.
Surrounded by friend and family watching them on the big screen, we couldn’t be prouder of our talented Screen Academy Company and their fantastic Director, Josh.
