BU TV grads winners at Screentest

Two Bournemouth BA TV Graduates have won top awards at Screentest: The National Student Film Festival dedicated to the promotion of aspiring British talent at London South Bank University over the weekend of 23 and 25th March.

BA Hons TV Production graduate James Trosh won best documentary for his entry titled Fighting Trump, telling the story of three people who have been affected by US billionaire Donald Trump’s planned golf development in Menie, near Aberdeen in Scotland,

“Two of my films were nominated for awards, and Fighting Trump was also nominated for Best Film as well as Best Documentary so I was very excited to be nominated for three categories.  When the nominations for Best Documentary were read out at the awards, I definitely had my fingers crossed for my film, but there were loads of other great nominations so I wasn’t expecting to win.”

James, who is now working as a content producer for Red Bull, also thanked BU for making him aware of the competition,

“BU are great at sending around opportunities and competitions that students can enter, and my films have been screened at festivals previously thanks to the opportunities BU advertise.”

The other BU winner was Duncan Christie who won Best Sci-Fi Fantasy for ‘Departure.’ You can see the full list of winners here.
