The University of the West of England enjoyed a good night at Bristol’s Watershed Cinema last month, winning three of the four main prizes at the RTS West of England Student Television Awards.

Tova Persson took home the Animation award for Offerlamm, which the judges said had “great style and story... memorable and very original”. The filmmaker also won two Craft Skills awards for the film, Production Design and Writing.

The Entertainment and Comedy prize went to “an engaging film [with] strong performances”, Robbie Wrecked the Band. Beached, which had “great performances” and was “authentic and beautifully shot”, took the Drama prize. The Factual prize went to the University of Gloucester- shire’s Let’s Talk Clit, “an entertaining piece, visually very cool... funny, really watchable, mature and well written”.

RTS West of England Chair Lynn Barlow said: “It is a stellar year for new talent... with strong, bold and beautiful work from students across the region making the shortlists in every category.”
