Young stars shined at the Richard House Oscars Ceremony 

A celebration of life and film took place on the 7th of November at the Richard House Children’s Hospice during the annual Film Club Oscars Ceremony.

The annual red carpet ceremony, held every November, was created to showcase the amazing work created by the stars of the Richard House Living Films club. It’s an opportunity for children and young adults with life-limiting conditions at the hospice and their siblings to premiere films that they have created over the past year.

This year special guests included the extravagant singer Diane Horan-Hill, best known for her performance at Pride earlier this year.

After showing their films to a large audience of family members and supporters, the budding film makers were awarded Oscars for their hard work.

Bernie Wighton, Creative Media Family Support Worker says – The Oscars are a celebration of creativity and achievements of children, siblings and young adults who attend the Living Films Project. It allows children to express themselves in a way that they wouldn’t be able to do outside of Richard House. Through film they are able to explore their creativity, build self-esteem and develop a voice to tell their very own personal stories.
