Our 2018 film festival and awards ceremony took place in the marquee at The National Brewery Centre, Burton-on-Trent.
Everyone had the chance to walk the red carpet into the venue last night and be photographed as we celebrated another year of achievements.
An audience of students, family members, friends and supporters watched films made by students during the year. Awards were presented for performance and progress but also for traits such as helpfulness and kindness, passion and spirit.
The Principal’s Award went to Eryn Baldwin. Principal Heather Gallagher said: “This year the Principal’s Award was an easy decision. This student, to an audience, comes across as extremely confident and talented. Behind the scenes, I know how hard she works to achieve the level of performance we ask of her and the level she asks of herself. Like some of the best actors out there, Eryn questions her own ability constantly. She has delivered OUTSTANDING performances this year and is a pleasure to have around. Eryn spreads joy constantly and, in my opinion, has a very bright future in performing arts. I’m very much looking forward to seeing Eryn continue to grow and impress audiences as she has done this year.”
This was our second annual film festival, and the audience loved every second of our music videos and short films made by students.
All the films are on the StageScreen YouTube channel and it’s easy to subscribe to see new films as they are added.
Here are three of the videos shown last night.
