2022 NCL Film Festival Highlights and Award Winners

Staff and students from all levels of our courses came together on Friday 10th June to watch a programme of short films, documentaries, music videos and showreels in the screening room at GMAC in Glasgow’s City Centre.

The full playlist of features from the event is available to view at our department’s YouTube Channel.

All agreed that the calibre of work this year has been exceptionally high and the award panel had a few debates and tough decisions along the way to selecting this year’s award winners:

  • HND Student of the year: Christopher Kelly
  • HNC Student of the year: Sarah Stables
  • NQ Student of the year: Linsay McNab
  • Best Showreel :Katarzyna Rycak
  • Best Short Film: Sarah Stables (Falsehood)
  • Best VFX and Sound Design: Chris Haughey (The Box)
  • Best Documentary: Graeme Ross (The Art of Falling)
  • Promising New Director: Simon Bryant (The Scent)
  • Most Improved Student: Iona Foulis

“It was a pleasure to watch this year’s student films in the GMAC screening room, and I think all the students got a kick from seeing their features on the big screen. The quality of the work this year was outstanding and we can already see the difference that the department’s Next Generation HN approach has made, which is really encouraging. I’d like to thank everyone involved, students and staff for all their hard work this year.”

Michael Grant, Film & Television Lecturer

“The quality from the HN’s this year has been really high, not only the practical and technical skills, but also the social skills. We’ve been lucky with our Next-Gen pilot cohort, in that we’ve had some really talented students come on board. Students that are now hopefully more open to new networking opportunities and more aware of the possibilities of a good collaboration. Skills and experiences that should see them well on their way. It’s great (and important) to see the hard work the students have put in all year long is recognised and rewarded at an event like this.

All the winners really deserved their awards.”

Alec Cheer, Film & Television Lecturer
