Fi Milligan Rennie, Curriculum Manager for the College’s Creative Industries Department:

“We had a very successful Arts Festival in partnership with the Tolbooth in March this year and hoped to capitalise on that success with an end of year screening, however the coronavirus pandemic meant we had to think more crearively and the idea of an online film festival was born.

“Our students are so excited to have the opportunity to showcase their work to such a wide audience. It means a lot to them after all their hard work throughout the year and particularly this year, with all the challenges they’ve faced due to lockdown. I’m exceptionally proud of the way they pulled together to create the festival and we’ve already had some great feedback around the quality of the films that are being screened.  There’s a little bit of something for everyone and it’s great to get somany lovely comments.

“Whilst this was our first film festival, we hope it will become a regular fixture in the college calendar for years to come.  We are hugely grateful to the Tolbooth team for their support is arranging the festival.”
