The University of York’s Isaac Smith took home the Animation award for The Animator, which the judges praised as a “fantastic and entertaining short film that delivered everything it promised”.
The drama award went to a team from the Northern Film School at Leeds Beckett University for Argot, an “imaginative and mature film with a brilliant central premise”. Another group of Northern Film School students won the Short Form prize for the “really impressive, evocative” Footfalls.

“The standard of entries for 2019 was very high – several jurors said that you could ‘broadcast that tomorrow’ about many of the films we watched,”  said Aradhna Tayal, the Chair of the awards.

“Many seized the opportunity to use their work as a means of challenging and addressing real-life, taboo topics,” she added. “The jurors were in agreement that the entries this year demonstrated the ways in which art can be both important and meaningful.”
