We’re thrilled to announce that 13 students from Truro & Penwith College have been selected to take part in the prestigious BFI Cornwall Film Academy.

The students – who are all studying for the UAL Level 3 Diploma in Creative Media & Production Technology – overcame stiff competition to win an impressive 13 out of 20 places on the course.

They will now work with filmmaking professionals to learn valuable skills through a series of industry-led workshops and practical experience.

What’s more, students from the same course also won six accolades at the Cornwall Film Festival 2015; three first place awards and three runners-up.

Proud tutor Sharon Purdie said “UAL’s Creative Media course has enabled our students to develop technical skills in all areas of production and allowed them to embrace industry opportunities such as these. They have been able to produce a short film from conception to screening with support from the college.”
