Year 9 Shakespeare Film Competition

23 June 2016

This year, Year 9 students entered BIS’ first ever ‘Shakespeare Film Competition’

The competition invited Year 9 to film their version of a Shakespeare scene from either ‘Romeo and Juliet’ or ‘Macbeth’. They were judged on the following: interpretation of the play; understanding of themes and issues within the scene; understanding of Shakespeare’s language; character portrayal and students’ use of stagecraft.

The English Department was very impressed with the high standard of films that were entered; our judges Miss Sargent, Head of Drama, Miss Tiemann, Head of Year 9 and Ben Bieri, Y12 Student Ambassador for Drama, highly commended Year 9s creativity, collaboration and independence which saw them produce a range of fantastic interpretations.

Winners were: in 3rd place 9I with their fantastic classic interpretation of Macbeth’s banquet scene, in 2nd place 9C with their wonderfully imaginative interpretation of Macbeth’s banquet scene in the style of Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and in 1st place 9H with their stunning minimalist interpretation of ‘Romeo and Juliet’s’ Act 4 scene 5.

The three winning entries will now be entered into the Cambridge University Press’ Shakespeare Film Competition. We wish all our winners the best of luck.

Well done to all involved.
