The College Filmmaking Challenge, previously known as the Wessex Colleges Filmmaking Challenge has produced some incredible short films over a number of years and inspired young filmmakers to continue their filmmaking careers, many through university, into the industry. Students from regional colleges such as Ringwood School, St.Vincent’s College, Barton Peveril Sixth Form and Farnborough College have all taken home prizes in recent years.
The College Filmmaking Challenge has yet to make it’s post-COVID return however there is still opportunities for young filmmaking talent to be celebrated at SFW and at City Eye.
