A FILMMAKER has scooped a top prize in a national competition for his movie about how he broke through stereotypes for his learning disabilities.

Lloyd Page, from Bromley, beat more than 1,000 entries to pick up the Filmmaker of the Future Award for his autobiographical movie Flipping the Page.

Mr Page said: "Winning a competition on a national level is a dream come true. I have acted in plays before but to have won a prize on my directorial debut really is a special feeling.

"I hope the film can help inspire anyone with disabilities to achieve anything they want to." The film was directed, written, edited and produced with independent film director Tarun Thind, 22, who said: "I've been directing short films for many years now and to have finally got some recognition truly is an amazing feeling. Working with Lloyd was an excellent experience, we had a lot of fun together and I learnt a lot from him." Mr Page will collect his award at a ceremony on June 17 and the film will be shown at Camden's Proud Gallery from June 16 to 28.
