Andres Groves (second year Television and Video technology student) was voted by the viewers and judges as the winner of the ‘Best documentary or Experimental film’ category for 20-25 year olds. Judges also agreed his film was one of the best short films seen in the competition over the last three years, across a range of genres.
Watch Andres winning film ‘I am London’
The documentary encapsulates the very essence of London. What makes London the unique city that it is, are the citizens who inhabit it. The gathering of nations who have settled, influenced and shaped what London is today: a multicultural haven, has meant that all can benefit from such a culturally-intertwined society. Making a city such as this, the perfect host for the upcoming Olympics.
Susan Scotcher, Television and Video Technology Course Director , commented: “ Not only did Andres have a winning film but also delivered a marvellous acceptance speech. I am really proud of his work and he deserved to win.”
