University of Gloucestershire students scoop film awards

University of Gloucestershire film production students are celebrating a success-filled evening at the Royal Television Society West of England Student Awards.

Top prizes were claimed by film-making teams in the comedy and entertainment and factual categories at the ceremony at the Everyman Cinema in Bristol.

Talented students from the University's BA Film Production course also claimed also a raft of gongs in the Craft Awards for camerawork, sound, editing, production design and directing.

Course Leader, Mike Parker, said: "I was so proud to see our students and recent graduates winning awards in so many categories.

"It was wonderful to see their hard work rewarded by the industry. It was a particularly pleasing to win so many craft awards which is a real credit to the strength and breadth of teaching across the course."

In the factual category, the film 'Memories of Mother' beat competition from a rival Gloucestershire team as well as competition from the University of Bristol, the University of West of England and Bristol film school Screenology.

'Delicious Love' took the prize in the Comedy and Entertaiment category seeing off entries from Bath Spa University, UWE and the film 'Dearly Departed' from fellow University of Gloucestershire students.

Dearly Departed did take one award with popular music graduate Demi Marriner rewarded for 'best composition' for her work on the film.

All the winners now go forward to the RTS UK National Finals to be held in April.

University of Gloucestershire Head of School of Media for the, Anne Dawson, said: "We are really thrilled to have won so many awards and to have two winners through to the National Finals.

"The School of Media was up against the top universities in the region, and to win so many Craft Awards is testament to the very high-level teaching and support our students receive.

"We are very proud of all our students and delighted to have our fantastic courses recognised like this."
