Local Student Film Makers Make Their Mark At This Year's Cornwall Film Festival

University's College Falmouth's renowned BA/Hons Film course will play a starring role in this year's Cornwall Film Festival.
Eight talented young filmmakers will have their films screened at the festival with six having submitted entries for the Delabole Slate Best Student Film Audience Award. Trailers produced by current students to advertise Film at Falmouth will also be shown throughout the festival. In addition, UCF will sponsor a series of workshops as well as a new award for 2008, the Another Country International Short Film Award.
Now in its seventh year, the Cornwall Film Festival, which takes place between November 6 and 9, is an invaluable showcase for Cornish filmmakers where students, amateurs and industry professionals combine to demonstrate the country's filmic diversity.
The six student films to feature in the Delabole Slate Best Student Film Audience Award screening, which will take place on November 9 from 11:30am at the Princess Pavilion in Falmouth, are Selected Personal Images by Tom Hepworth; Saving Cornwall's Heritage by Sarah De Courcy; P.O.V. by Michael Ellis; Falmouth Dock 2007 by Jack Bridger; Resolve by Edmund Fargher' and The Balls by John Barton Milmo.
The audience will be invited to vote for their favourite movie with the winner being announced at an awards ceremony later that evening.
Thirty-second trailers made by current students to showcase the BA/Hons Film course at Falmouth highlight the passion of the team at UCF for filmmaking as well as how a sound theoretical backbone and practical grounding is vital for any budding filmmaker. From learning how to operate highly technical specialist equipment to how a film is constructed, the adverts, designed to inspire prospective students, cover every aspect of the filmmaking art.
Karl Phillips, Course Leader of BA/Hons, said: "We're pleased to be able to sponsor so many of the events and it's fantastic to have our students' work screened alongside new films from Terence Davies and Fernando Meirelles. In addition, the festival offers the rare opportunity to meet and engage with a wide range of industry professionals and I'm sure that students and Cornish filmmakers alike will make the most of this prospect."
