A KIDDERMINSTER cinema is set to showcase the film premiere of a locally-produced movie in support of a Wyre Forest charity.

Lume Cinema, Green Street, is joining forces with Kidderminster's White Raven Films to host fantasy horror Axel Falcon on Friday, April 12.

There are further screenings across the weekend of Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14 for the public.

All ticket sales go directly to Reach Out which supports children and young adults in the Wyre Forest area suffering from emotional and mental health issues.

The film will include a behind-the-scenes documentary Darkly Took the Light which charts the tragic events of the past four years of filmmaking at White Raven.

There will also be a presentation from the charity about its work supporting young people and children.

Ryan Brunt, of White Raven Films, said: “We are very grateful that Lume Cinema is holding such a fantastic event to help us fund vital support for families with emotional issues or conditions of emotional stress.

"It’s going to be a great night. Money raised from the event will enable Reach Out to continue their good work within the community.

"The issues this charity stand for resonate very closely with issues covered in the documentary which mean a lot to us.”

Through the provision of one-to-one support, group workshops and therapeutic service, the charity aims to improve self-confidence, well-being and mental health whilst reinforcing their core values of being inclusive and accessible.

It has counsellors, therapists and support volunteers who work with those who need support.

Jake Russell George, of Lume Cinema, said: We are delighted to offer a platform for White Raven Films to show the community their fantastic film as well as the behind-the-scenes documentary.

"It’s wonderful to see such talent locally and at Lume Cinema which is something we very much champion.”

Robert Collins, a trustee of Reach Out, will be giving a talk before the film and documentary about his own experience.

He will also speak about the importance of the charity and Mitch’s Law, a campaign to get better mental health support and services from the government for young people.
