Lincoln School of Film & Media is delighted that our undergraduates’ work have been nominated for 10 Royal Television Society (RTS) Midlands Student Awards 2019. Joint Media Production Programme Leader is Chris Hainstock: This year LSFM have received a record number of nominations for Regional RTS Student Film Awards this year, and we’re proud of the work the students have put in and the films themselves. We have three nominations for animation as well as others for drama and factual. In addition three craft nominations for Camera, Production Design and Editing. It is particularly pleasing to see a joint camera nomination for two female cinematographers working on a challenging period drama. We are competing against other Universities in the region such as Derby, Birmingham, Nottingham and Staffordshire – and we will find out the results on 28th February at the awards ceremony, which will include a special Lenny Henry sponsored award, and if successful the students will go through to the national award ceremony in June.
The winners will be announced at a celebratory ceremony on the evening of Thursday 28th February at The Book Rotunda in The Library of Birmingham, so here’s hoping for some ‘gongs’. Congratulations to the students and staff concerned – ‘and the nominations are’:
