The fifth annual Rob Knox Film Festival took place in Bexleyheath last week in memory of the murdered Harry Potter actor.

Cineworld Bexleyheath was packed out for the event which had the theme of “inspiration” and received dozens of entries, many produced and directed by young people. Best film went to Driftwood and was presented to James Webber by Rob’s father Colin Knox. Driftwood also picked up Best Screenplay, presented to James by Ben Trebilcook who featured in the Times last week over claims that he created the character of Lara Croft.

Teenager Rob Knox was killed in Sidcup in 2008 after a fight broke out in Metro bar. He had previously appeared in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
