Film Festival

Film Festival

The inaugural Canford House Drama Film Festival challenged each House to create a film of around 10 minutes, along with a trailer to promote it, on the theme of ‘Heroes and Villains’. This was a fantastic way to bring pupils across the year groups in Houses together and they spent many hours creating their concepts and producing their films.

On Saturday 14th May, the films were premiered in the Layard Theatre, with those unable to attend offered a live stream option.  A worthy alternative to the Eurovision Song Contest that evening!  The best entries were announced in a glittering awards ceremony at the end of the night.

Canford’s Head of Drama, Rikki Jackson, said “All ten houses produced some great short films in a mixture of styles and with plenty of creativity and flair and pupils from all year groups were involved both in front and behind the camera.”
