Southampton undergraduate filmmakers' success

Published: 1 March 2011

Two BA Film students, Emma Kinni and Emily Reynolds, have had their work selected for Screentest, the 2011 National Student Film Festival.

The films, one of which has been nominated for a Screentest 'best script' award, will be shown at the Festival in March.

Emma says: "I spent three years gaining knowledge from my course before making Triumph. The film, dealing with gender portrayals, was inspired by my dissertation on Pedro Almodóvar’s representation of femininity. I wrote and directed the film, recruiting most of my cast and crew from the University. Wessex Films, the student filmmaking society, was a massive help, providing me with people, equipment and brilliant advice. I will continue writing and directing films through an MA degree in Film Directing which I am due to start in January 2012."

Emily, currently in her second year, says: "The film Working Lunch that some of my friends and I made over the summer has been nominated for best script at Screentest, and I cannot wait to go to the awards ceremony. It would be fantastic if I won but just to be involved is so exciting."
