 Inspirational  lm-makers of the future
From Morris Men to a premiership referee, the subjects for the 14th annual screening of new  lms by members of the Abingdon School, Oxfordshire, Film Unit (AFU) were as diverse
as they were fascinating. The screening of 11 new  lms took place at Abingdon School and re ected a bumper year in terms of the range of projects undertaken by the Unit and its alumni.
The AFU enables students aged 13 to 18 to make their own short  lms under the guidance of a team of industry professionals assembled by a renowned documentary maker, the late Michael Grigsby. The AFU’s students are predominantly from Abingdon School but some come from other senior schools.
Jeremy Taylor, Director of Drama at Abingdon and in charge of the Film Unit, congratulated
all the young  lm-makers saying, “Making a  lm is a very signi cant challenge for anyone, let alone a relatively young person. It requires a wide range of attributes, including tenacity and patience. Anyone who successfully completes that challenge has not only learned things about  lm-making, but about themselves.”
The Michael Grigsby Young Filmmaker Awards went to two students, Harry Buchan (pictured) for his  lm about the Winstanley Estate, and to Joe Bradley for the  lm about his great, great grandfather’s missionary work.
To date, the AFU has produced nearly 150  lms, many of which have won a number of awards and been screened at festivals in America, France, Sweden, Hong Kong and throughout the UK.
The Bigger Picture
A joint art project between an independent and a state school in London involved 120 Year 5 children working together over six weeks to create an artwork which celebrates the ongoing cooperation between the schools.
