KGV hosts annual Oscar ceremony

To celebrate the innovation and hard work of the Colleges Film and Media Studies departments, King George V College hosted their annual Oscar ceremony.



In a busy theatre, decorated extravagantly by the students, students from both Film Studies and Media Studies were awarded for their efforts throughout the year with certificates and Oscar statuettes.

Mark Hughes, Course Leader for Film Studies and Media Studies, said: Its a wonderful way to celebrate the students achievements throughout the year.

Film and Media students at KGV do a great deal of work in terms of their coursework productions, and it is fitting to have an event that recognises that effort, as well as the high standard of work that is produced.

The evening also featured the screening of two student films, Life During Death by AS Level students Jay McAdam and Nina Taylor, and Infinity by A Level students Andy Green, Josh Langan and Rob Anderson.

Andy Green, an A Level Film student and winner of the Best Director Oscar, said: Im thrilled to win this award! It was a great end to the year, and so nice that my work has been recognised!
