You may remember that back in November we reported that ex-Holgate and Hucknall Sixth Form Centre student Britany S had been shortlisted for the ‘Best Screenplay) award at the Moving Image Awards.

On Monday this week (13 January 2020), Britany attended the prestigious awards ceremony at the British Film Institute in London, with film studies teacher Mr Morgan accompanying her down there. We are delighted to share the wonderful news that Britany won the award for her screenplay ‘Lost in Fantasy’, written during her A Level in Film Studies.

This is an incredible achievement for Britany to have competed nationally and to be successful. She was awarded a trophy, a £100 cheque and got to attend a masterclass from working filmmakers.

All centres that offer Film Studies GCSE/A Level are eligible and with awards also handed out for best short film, best music video, best film extract, best television extract and best animation.

This is the second year in a row that an ex-Holgate and HSFC student has received this award, following the success of Marshall C last year. Well done to Mr Morgan and the sixth form team, together with our talented students.
