Nantwich Film Festival competition, won by college students

College students are celebrating after winning a short film competition in the run-up to the Nantwich Film Festival.

The South Cheshire College trio created and filmed a short masterpiece called ‘The Journey Of A Heart’.

It was screened at the inaugural festival in May.

Crewe and Nantwich MP Edward Timpson and Nantwich Mayor Councillor Andrew Martin opened the festival at Nantwich Civic Hall along with organisers Mike Tilley and Roger Hinde.

Students on the winning team were Chole Moles, Ben Goff and Josh Sawtell, and they saw their film on the big screen on the final evening of the festival.

There was also a runners-up prize for media students Emma Donovan, Erik Kovacs and Zoey Cutts for their film ‘Demens.’

The Learning Resource Centre sponsored the short film competition and provided trophies for winners.

Mike Tilley, chair of the Nantwich Film club, visited the college to present the winning students and runners-up with a trophy, certificates and free guest passes for the festival.

“I’m very impressed with the standard of films that students have produced.

“All the film entries we received for the competition were excellent.

“This was the first ever Nantwich Film Festival but we aim to build on the event and make it bigger and better each year.

South Cheshire College students helped to shape the festival this year and it was pleasing for the winning group to see their short film screened on the final evening of the weekend.”

Nantwich Film Club is a volunteer organisation which runs and screens independent, classic and foreign language films on the second Monday of each month at Nantwich Civic Hall.

Learning Resource Centre manager Joanne Stewart was delighted different groups of college students entered the competition.

Joanne said: “Students deserve a great deal of credit for the films they have produced.

“This was the first Nantwich Film Festival and it was great that our media students grasped this opportunity with both hands to get involved in a fantastic celebration of film.”
