Last week actor Tom Felton (Draco) presented awards to young film fans at a special event held in the UK. Today, there is some great new video of Tom presenting at the Young Film Critics of the Year Awards which also contains a short new interview with Tom. Thanks as well to FilmClub who sent us this photo of Tom with the two winners: Rosemary Collins and Phoebe Lawrance. You can read their winning film reviews here at this link. While at the awards, Tom answered a few questions as follows:

FC: "You are here today at the Young Critics Awards, giving out awards to two FILMCLUB members who have reviewed films on the site.  Do you read your own film reviews?"

Tom Felton: "Yes, it was a great honour (to give out the award) I personally don’t go searching, not that I don’t appreciate the comments or opinions of other people, I like to hear what the fans have got to say.  I confess that I have a very good girlfriend who manages to email me all the best ones but I get quite a biased opinion of the films! I remember speaking to the director of the Harry Potter films and we both said, there’s going to be so many pros and so many(cons)…because there’s going to be thousands of reviews people are going to love it, or people are going to hate it. You’ve just got to take what you can from it really."

FC: "What do you think about FILMCLUB?"

Tom Felton: "I think it’s a fantastic initiative. I think FILMCLUB…a getting kids into films is a great idea but the idea of getting them into films as a group is even better.   I’m actually quite a lonely go-er to the cinema, I go quite often by myself but nothing beats going with a group of people.  Even if people disagree with what you think of the film its kind of good.  You kind of learn who you are by going to films with different people really.  I think it’s a great way to interact with other kids and see what’s out there."

Thanks much to Film Club and Anna!

That’s funny, I love to go to the cinema by myself as well. But he’s right. Nothing beats a group.

I don’t go to the cinema myself. I usually go with family since cinema is more a family day out.
