Students win BFI Academy Awards

Friday 9 February 2018

 

Two media students from Richmond upon Thames College have received special commendations for their films at the annual Eastside BFI Film Academy Screening Awards, which took place in Bethnal Green in London at the Rich Mix Theatre and Community Arts Hub on Sunday 28th January 2018.

Chanelle Henry-Edwards received a Special Commendation for her editing on short film 'Greta’ and the film also received an Audience Award for Best Film. Jake Lizcano received a Special Commendation for directing 'Ready, Fight!’ Both students will receive a Silver Arts Level 2 Award.

Chanelle and Jake, both second year Level 3 Creative Media Production students, took part in the BFI Film Academy programme with the Eastside Educational Trust. The programme is designed for 16-19 year-old aspiring filmmakers and provides the opportunity to develop hands-on filmmaking experience while working alongside respected industry professionals.

Out of 80 applicants 24 students from colleges across London were selected to take part in the programme, which ran from 14 October 2017- 10 February 2018.

Chanelle said: “I’m still in shock about the whole thing and being chosen out of all of those applicants is amazing. I’m just feeling really proud of myself. Our media teacher, David Radcliffe, recommended that we enter as some past students have done it and really benefited from the experience.”
