University Fine Art film nominated for Learning on Screen Award

We are so pleased to share that a Loughborough University film featuring final year Fine Art student (now graduate) Amelia Seren Roberts has been nominated in the General In-house Production Award category at the Learning on Screen Awards, London!

The awards, led by the British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC), are the only celebration of film and media production in education in the UK. This year, 44 submissions were nominated in 12 different categories. The nominations recognise the work education institutions and other organisation or individual producing educational media.

Inspiring Creativity follows Amelia as she prepares for her final Degree Show and describes the journey of discovery and creativity she has experienced during her studies. It is one of four films released in November 2015 exploring the creative progression of students from the different art degrees offered here at the university. Also nominated was Daylighting of Heritage Spaces, directed by Creative and Print Services’ Video Producer, Dominic Richardson, which explores Professor John Mardaljevic’s research into the distribution of natural light and its level of exposure in historic buildings.

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 28 April at the British Film Institute in London - we'll be crossing our fingers!
