Students from the School of Film & Television have been nominated for six awards at the Royal Television Society (RTS) Devon and Cornwall Student Awards 2018, including Best Drama, Best Comedy, Best Factual and Best Animated Film.
Christopher Morris, Director of the School of Film & Television, commented: "What is so pleasing is the breadth and ambition made by our students. The nominated films include the true story of a scientist who spent months in a cave underground, a film that imagines that life on earth has ceased and a moving transgender journey is explored."
