International acclaim for Ghost Street
Ghost Street – the film aimed at making teenagers think twice about road safety – has won an international award for ‘Best Short Film’.
Ghost Street beat off competition from 40 countries to pick up the silver award at the prestigious New York Festivals Worlds Best Film and Television Awards.
The film was commissioned by Newcastle City Council’s road safety team and Safe Newcastle as a learning resource for schools in Newcastle. But the film was so well received that it has been rolled out nationally by Road Safety GB. It has also won awards for Best Drama at the Royal Television Society Awards and Best Education Film at the IVCA Awards.
In the film a series of spooky victims of road accidents haunt a quiet urban street; a zombie skateboarder, an 80s throwback and a young mum-to-be with eternal morning sickness provide words of warning to the lead character, Tabby, who is too focussed on her mp3 player, Facebook and boys.
