National Schools Film & Animation Awards
More wonderful news on the film awards front as Floella Benjamin announced that Newman School had won the KS3 Animation Category in the National Schools Film & Animation Awards!
Our film Homage to Hitch was honoured by a 11-strong panel, chaired by Baroness Benjamin, which comprised educationalists, writers, IT experts and critics. A 7-hour judging day viewed all the entries, looking for excellence, creativity, originality, content and film making skills. A secret vote was then held to determine the winners!
Jack and the Beanstalk, made in collaboration with Sitwell Junior School also won the KS1 Film Category. So congratulations to Newman School for both the win and the assist at this year's awards.
