Oska Bright Film Festival 2022
Three films made by pupils at Woodlands Meed have been accepted into the Oska Bright Film Festival 2022.
‘Get the Baguette’ and ‘Rosie’s Dream’ were made by a performing arts, music and media class collaboration and the other film ‘Infiltration at Bakura’ was created by Jake, who created an incredible stop motion animation from Lego.
Arts Lead Teacher Gabrielle Woerndl was delighted with her pupil’s success
‘I am so thrilled that our film maker’s effort have been rewarded by being chosen for the Oska Bright Film Festival this year. Our students have created some brilliant work and to be part of the festival to share this with other film makers is just fantastic. To be chosen from 600 entries is a huge achievement for all those involved’
