A SPECIAL treat is in store for aspiring film-makers and actors at the upcoming Film Fiji Kula Awards this weekend.

Shortland Street stars Ben Mitchell and Frankie Adams, who play Dr T K Samuels and Ula Levi, respectively, are jetting in for the event.

A joint statement from Fiji Airways and Film Fiji confirmed the duo would be on hand for the final nights of the awards in Suva this Friday and Saturday, as well at a special "fan day" also scheduled for Saturday.

Film Fiji's acting chairperson Shaenaz Voss said the awards were centred on introducing students to film-making, technical production and acting and that with the right support, they would be interested in considering the craft as a viable career path.

"The presence of these popular stars will inspire our young film-makers further along this path," Ms Voss said.

"It will mean a lot to budding film-makers and Fijian students to have their on-screen stars with them during the awards."

In the statement, Mitchell said they looked forward to seeing what the students had come up with in Suva.

"We are so pleased that Fiji Airways was able to create this opportunity so that we can witness first-hand the talent of students in Fiji."
