We’re enormously proud of the work and continued successes of our students and graduates! Here we have a selection of the festival acceptances, screenings, and awards they have enjoyed over the last month.
First, MA Screenwriting graduate and PhD student Gonzalo Maza’s (MAS 12) first feature film, Ella es Cristina, will be released on 13 June 2019. Maza is the writer-director on the film, produced by Salma Hayek’s Ventanarosa Productions.
MA Filmmaking graduate Franco Volpi's grad film has had a very exciting run, from a Student Oscar finalist and Student BAFTA shortlist to 26 festivals around the world, including Palm Springs, Max Ophüls, and Sao Paolo. This number continues to increase, as Sol de Agosto has been selected for the highly respected Edinburgh International Film Festival 2019!
