Staff from our School of Film & Television have been nominated for Best Feature and Best Documentary at the 2017 Celtic Media Festival.
Brett and Simon Harvey see their film, Brown Willy, nominated for Best Feature. Described in The New Statesman as 'Cornwall's answer to Withnail & I' the hilarious second feature by the brothers was shot in just ten days with a student crew on Bodmin Moor. The film is a beautifully crafted comedy drama about a stag do that goes terribly wrong on an unforgiving moor.

The documentary, Enough To Fill Up An Eggcup, formed part of a larger project with The National Trust and Golden Tree Productions creatively engaging with the issue of rising sea levels.
