Foundation Studies Film Festival

Foundation Studies students organised a film festival, screening films made by themselves to parents, carers and their fellow Pathways students.

Taking place in the TV Studio at College, students, on the Upper Pathways course, screened their films, with genres ranging from comedy, action and adventure to informative documentary pieces. The students worked on and starred in the films themselves, showcasing a myriad of talents from acting to scriptwriting.

The students used the festival to raise money for Watford New Hope Trust, in aid of supporting homeless people in Hertfordshire, and managed to raise an impressive £120 for the charity. Tutor Martin Renshaw said of the event: “Having worked very hard on the filmmaking process over last term, both staff and students alike were very excited to see an excellent turn out from parents, carers and staff from other departments at the Film Festival.”

“The films received an enthusiastic response from our audience, and showcased previously hidden talents from this year’s cohort of students. The films were an excellent way to both learn new skills, and also embed criteria covered for their qualification earlier in the academic year. We hope to repeat the event and make it an annual occurrence going forward.”
