Further to the online streaming of 2020 Canterbury University Film Festival (CUFF) last Saturday, we are delighted to announce that several of our students in the School of Arts won awards for their filmmaking at the festival.
CUFF is an independent festival that provides an opportunity for students from all three universities in Canterbury – the University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University and the University for the Creative Arts – to come together through their love of filmmaking.
The Kent School of Arts students who won awards were:
- Marko Steinberg, on the BA (Hons) in Film with Comparative Literature, won Best Editing for the film Forking Paths
- BA (Hons) in Film students Asher Melville and Niall Murphy, won Best Sound for the film Lotuseater
- Oliver Finlinson, who studying his BA (Hons) in Film with a Placement Year, won both Best Director and Best Short Film with the entry Acid Rain.
Students from external universities who won awards include:
- Luke Russell and Lewis Pashley, from the University of the Creative Arts won Best Cinematography, for the film Apologue 427
- Céline Ufenast, also from the University of the Creative Arts won Best Animated Short, for the film Beach Body Ready.
The festival was co-organised by MA in Film student Catherine Lawler.
The films will be viewable on YouTube here until tomorrow.
