Moving Image Awards

The fourth Moving Image Awards organised by WJEC/Eduqas were held on Friday 12th January at the BFI Southbank in London to celebrate the work of some of the UK's brightest young filmmakers.

Moving Images Awards At The BFI 12Th January 2018 580 3AThe Moving Image Awards recognise and celebrate the best moving image productions from students undertaking WJEC qualifications in Film and Media across the UK. The awards provide talented film-makers the springboard they need to stand out in their university applications and during the beginning of their careers.

One of these students was George Whitehouse from Heaton Manor School whose television extract Caff in Their Eyes was shortlisted for an award. George’s work was selected from a very strong field of applicants from across the country. His TV extract, an ironic take on the reality TV genre, was shown on a cinema screen to a large audience of students, educators and professionals from the industry and was given very positive feedback.

The event was attended by Dan Herdman and Adam McDonald who starred in the production and by Stephen Beecroft and Christine Bell from the Media Studies department at the school.

The guest presenters at the awards included film critics and broadcasters Larushka Ivan-Zadeh and Anna Smith and screenwriter Kate Leys.
