Watch the pupils from Heymann Primary School in action

Pupils from Heymann Primary School in Nottingham love their school so much they made a film about it and it's been nominated for a top award in America.

Their film is called It's Not The Dinners... and it's about different kids' experiences and how the school helped them to overcome their problems.

Everyone at the school got involved - the pupils did the filming and editing themselves and some of them even starred in it!

They got to use lots of great equipment which is normally used by the professionals.

The film even won a prize - it was awarded Best Film by under 12s by First Light, a UK film and media organisation.

But it didn't stop there - they even got nominated for a top award at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival in America!
