A FILM created by talented young film-maker Kyle Yallop will be screened across the UK as part of the London 2012 Olympics.

Kyle, from Grantham, had entered his film entitled ‘Liar’ into a competition, which came out on top at the Film Nations: Shorts Awards in London last month.

The ceremony was hosted by T4’s Rick Edwards, with awards being presented by personalities from the worlds of film, TV and sport.

Kyle’s coup was in the best fiction category for 14- to 16-year-old, recognising his film-making talent.

Kyle, 16, said: “It felt amazing to win and was so unexpected.

“It’s such a great opportunity and I think it’s a brilliant programme for the younger generation.”

‘Liar’ will be shown at iconic sporting venues during the London 2012 Olympics next year.

It will also be shown at London 2012 live sites which are big screens set up in cities across the UK.

The film depicts a story about a relationship between a young boy and an ill, old man, which is broken when the boy is accused of stealing money from his house.

Although he is not the thief, he feels that no-one will believe him if he speaks out because he is a child.
