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.
