TWO South Yorkshire students had big fun in the Big Apple after being invited to visit the Manhattan International Film Festival.

Dom Chambers and Emma George left Barnsley College for New York after their short film was chosen as a finalist in the World Youth Alliance’s international competition.

Their 10-minute work, People Like Me, was chosen along with 14 other short films from young directors across the world.

The 18-year-olds stayed in a hotel near Times Square and visited the city’s landmarks.

Emma said: “It was an amazing experience - I am never going to forget it.”
