STUDENTS walked down the red carpet to pick up coveted awards at the eighth annual St Mary’s College Film Festival.

The event celebrates the achievements of talented students on the college’s film and media courses.

A wide range of videos from short films to music videos to documentaries were screened to a packed and appreciative auditorium.

The evening was hosted by students Ynez Taylor-Wood and Danny Grunshaw who dressed to impress and announced and presented awards, bringing a touch of Oscars glamour to the event.

Jenny McNulty, head of media and film, said: “Once again, the quality and professionalism of our students’ work has increased and many have shown genuine talent for media production. The media and film students at St Mary’s work so hard on their coursework, it is a pleasure to reward them. I am so proud of them.”
