This culminated in DystopiaFest: a screening of film trailers, created by students, which drew upon their knowledge and understanding of ideas such as surveillance, totalitarian regimes and freedom fighters.
There were many excellent entries, each one unique, creative, and demonstrating a high degree of cinematographic skill. Notable crowd favourites included: ‘The Endurance’, an atmospheric and highly professional film; ‘Try to Escape’, a suspenseful and engaging production; and ‘Glitch’, a haunting, tragic vision of the future.
However, there could only be one winner, as voted for by fellow students: BT7274! Well done to Thor Christoffersen Hochman, Sam Cawley, Hugo Noublanche, Min Seo Kim and Flora Kim for creating such a thrilling and memorable piece of cinema!
All of the students worked extremely hard to create very memorable pieces of work and developed a great number of skills in the process. High standards have been set for DystopiaFest 2018!
