TWO Barnsley students jetted off to New York when a film they made was chosen as a finalist in an international film competition.

Dom Chambers and Emma George’s film  ‘People Like Me’ went to the Manhattan International Film Festival after being selected for the shortlist of the World Youth Alliance’s 2011 international film competition.

The film was chosen along with 14 other short films from young directors from Belgium, Spain, Ghana, Kenya, Rwanda, Philippines, India, Pakistan and the United States.

Emma, a former Kingstone School pupil said: ‘This was an amazing experience, I am never going to forget it."
