College students at Brockenhurst College got to see some sample films and ask Gary and Michael questions about how they can get involved in this year's festival.
There were about 20 attendees at this first student presentation at Brock, and we were pleasantly surprised by the level of engagement.
We screened three films that won categories last year as examples and then discussed the process of entering the competition and what sorts of tasks the students could be expected to do to get their film made.
We also announced the promo film competition which will run outside the main festival. Details of this will be posted shortly so other colleges can get involved.
