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’: Continue reading

On Tuesday the 11th September 2018 I concluded my 3 years as a student of LSFM, Lincoln School of Film and Media. Graduation is something we aim to achieve, but it isn’t until the day arrives that you are filled in a concoction of sadness that your undergraduate journey has ended, and pride at everything you have achieved in your time at Uni. The day involves seeing all your friends and family whilst sharing in each other’s happiness, taking thousands of photos so you can remember the day, seeing your lecturers and having them congratulate you on your achievements.
The ceremonies involve a lot of clapping! But all in all, the day revolves around pride. Pride in your own accomplishments, feeling the pride from your friends and family, pride in your school and pride within yourself. Tell people what you have been up to since leaving because they are genuinely interested and want the best for you. It doesn’t matter whether you got a job in the industry straight off the bat, or if you are taking some time out to think about what you really want to do, everyone will be proud of you.
