Weston premier for budding film makers
PUBLISHED: 12:00 03 June 2014
FILM makers of tomorrow will have their latest work premiered at a Weston venue.
Students from Weston College, studying for a degree in film and media production, debuted their first year films at the Cube cinema in Bristol.
In front of a packed out cinema, the students were able to briefly introduce their films, which varied from a four minute experimental film about dreams to a 20-minute documentary on American independent cinema.
And the films will be given their Weston showing at a public screening at Loves Cafe on Wednesday from 7.30pm.
Lecturer and course leader Jimmy Hay said: “I don’t think for a second this will be the last time their work will appear on the big screen.
“The students can’t wait to screen their films at Loves Café.”
Film student Dave Shuttleworth said: “It was just amazing to see our films on a full size cinema screen. We’ve only been studying since September, and yet it was difficult to decide which film to submit as we have done so many projects in college.
“The films got a really good response, and it was a great opportunity to chat to other filmmakers afterwards. It was really inspiring.”
Alongside BTEC film and media students, their films will be shown throughout the evening at Loves Café in West Street.
