The Lucky Number 13 Eat Our Shorts festival was held in the beautifully restored birthplace of cinema, Regent Street Cinema (thanks to the University of Westminster) on the 11th December 2015.
Three programmes of films from 20 member courses were watched by an enthusiastic audience who voted for the winners as follows:
Screening 1: Mr Madila by Rory Waudby-Tolley from the Royal College of Art
Screening 2: Apollo by Joe Betteridge from Anglia Ruskin, the Cambridge School of Art
Screening 3: Je ne suis pas Charlie by Tariq Elmakki, Russell Cleave and Paul Chanter from the Plymouth College of Art.
The filmmakers won passes to the Future Film Festival at the BFI and Amazon vouchers. The winning courses have been offered a masterclass by Arri.
Q&As were hosted by Mark Trompeteler from the BKSTS, Will Howe from Canterbury Christchurch and Dominic Lees from UCA Farnham.
Prizes were awarded by Nik Powell from the NFTS.
Many thanks are due to Peter Hort and his team, in particular Rhianna Rizvi who brought it all together.
