Commenting on this year’s entries, Mr Bohane, the competition organiser said: ‘I am very grateful for all 45 entries that we received this year. Every filmmaker took time to explore and express their own unique point of view on a subject or genre that they care about. Our students enthusiasm and ambition for creative crafts was very evident on the big screen and it was so good to have an audience back in the Recital Hall, laughing, reacting and celebrating together. Special thanks to Mrs Collier our presenter, Tracey Scoffield and Mr Reynold’s for making it such a successful event.
