Harrodian’s third annual Film Festival showcased films that were created, produced and directed entirely by pupils in the 13s and above.
A total of ten films were shortlisted and shown on a cinema screen in the Theatre in front of an expert judging panel, below, which included Tilly Wood, (parent, actor/producer), Colin Firth (parent, actor/producer), and Will Poulter (former Harrodian and actor). Our Prefect team skilfully hosted the evening, and popcorn, Prosecco, purple carpet and paparazzi all added to the ambiance. After they made their decision, the judges presented four prizes. Best overall film was awarded to Jamie (U6), below, for his professional wildlife documentary entitled Last Chance; best technical film to George Drayson (U6) and his team, for his black and white spy-inspired thriller, Lux; second prize went to Stuart Smilie (U6) and team, for his zombie-style comedy Twitcher, starring Kasim Khan (U6); and third prize was given to Neha Dhillon (15E) for her film and animation, Bottle Boy, starring Tomas Timmermans (11CO). All of their films can be viewed on the Harrodian Media youtube channel, and interviews with our judges, conducted and filmed by our students, will be uploaded shortly to our Harrodian Film Festival blog (http://harrodianfilmfestival.weebly.com).
