SCI-FI movies shot in North Staffordshire have been screened once again - more than 20 years after they were filmed.
The film night was hosted by a group of the former filmmakers over the weekend. The members of the onetime Kidsgrove and District Amateur Cinema Company converted the movies from traditional film on to DVDs for the reunion at the town's Crown Inn.
The films were shot during the 1970s and 1980s when the group would hit the streets and parks of the area to create what they describe as a 'dystopian vision' of the region in the future.
Reunion organiser Dave Fisher, aged 50, who attended Kidsgrove's Clough Hall Technology School and Stokeon-Trent College, and who now lives in London, said: They were all science-fiction films and we would use locations around the area.
I remember when we wanted a site with impressive views that we'd go straight to Central Forest Park in Hanley.
People would often watch what we were doing and we'd invite them to join in as extras. Ten films were made by the core group of 12 movie fans, running for between four and 40 minutes.
Theatre worker Dave added: When we first started out we were about 12 and then we just stuck with it and got better cameras and carried on into our 20s.
