Devon filmmaker Robin Whenary has picked up the Students’ Jury Prize at the Kid’s Eye Film Festival in Hungary for his film Fear, which has had screening at both Two Short Nights and the View From Here film festivals.
He told D+CFilm: “Filmmakers over 19 can enter films they made when they were younger, so I sent Fear and Seeing, both of which they screened.
“Fear was made for my A-Level Film and Video course at Exeter College in early 2002, when I was 17. It was shot in one rather frantic evening in my flat, with my friend Caedmon ‘Jones’ Gould in front of the camera.
“It feels nice but strange to win something for a short I made a few years ago. I hardly showed my early films to anyone at the time, let alone submitted them to festivals. Having them screened now is very encouraging, and will help to spur me on to make bigger and better things.”
We’re endeavouring to put a copy of the film on the site as one of our films for the week, but if you can’t wait you can have a gander at the flick on Brit films.
