Potter Stars in First Camden Film Festival
- Azkaban one of many films shot in NW1

TODAY sees the launch of the first Camden Film Festival, the highlight of which is the celebration of the NW1's film credits.

The most recent blockbuster to be shot partly in Camden is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, but the borough's filmic history goes back at least 50 years.

"The borough has such an extraordinary heritage in the industry - a heritage which many residents won't even know about - and we felt it was time this was recognised on a grand scale," said Dame Jane Roberts, Camden Council's leader.

Other events in the festival include tours of the MTV music video studios, a film masterclass and a Camden Roundhouse film day.

Films are to be shown at the Camden Lock Screen and the Camden Odeon. The festival runs until the 7th of June.
