University Centre Peterborough Hosted Its First Student Film Showcase, In Partnership With Gateway Film Festival

The red carpet was rolled out for creative students of both University Centre Peterborough and Peterborough College, as well as friends, family, and members of the creative community. A variety of film styles made up the 14 entries on the shortlist, including music videos, documentaries and short films.

Three students from Peterborough College, Lily Izzo, Riley Edmett and Jack Lewis, were the worthy winners on the night, as voted by local filmmakers, Jay Gearing from Red 7 Productions and Judi Alston from One to One Development Trust. Emily Steele, who runs the Gateway Film Festival, and also helped to decide on the winners, remarked, "The students' work was amazing. We saw 14 amazing, diverse films, ranging across fiction, documentary and music videos”. She continued, “The event had such a lovely and supportive atmosphere and the students are a credit to the brilliant teaching at Peterborough College and University Centre Peterborough”.

Curriculum Leader of the Media Production and Journalism degrees at University Centre Peterborough, Rachel Pishhorn said, “We were delighted to host our first ever Student Film Showcase as part of the Gateway Film Festival, and our students were so excited to have their films shown on the big screen”.

The winning films, along with those who made the shortlist, will be shown on UCP’s student blog at .
