Every year at Bede's the red carpet is unrolled, the bowties adjusted and the dresses carefully picked. A Hollywood atmosphere sets up around the school: it's Oscar night!

Entering the Miles Studio, popcorn and drinks were served as Bede's Film and Media stars wandered around the print media displays of work by Lower Sixth and Upper Fifth pupils. At 7.00pm both students and guests then took their seats for Bede's most glamorous night of the year.

Louis Hay was awarded the Oscar for 'Best Indie Trailer' and Nelson Biehler won for 'Best Print Media'.

Bede's is well know for is international community and therefore it was no surprise that an Oscar for 'Foreign Language' had to be awarded, which went to Paula's Schaper's dramatic trailer.

Ed, Will and Charlie took advantage of Brighton's Zombie festival where they shot their trailer and which made them the winners of the 'Creativity and Opportunism' Oscar.

Next, Henry and Harry were awarded an Oscar for their very professional, amazing action and thriller trailer 'Abducted'.

The Upper Sixth showed great professionalism, creativity and skill as we saw throughout the evening. Roberta was awarded the Oscar for 'Best Print' with her innovative Peta campaign.

The Oscar for 'Best Effects' was given to Will Boyd and, lastly, Sophie Bordiehn was rewarded for her stop motion animation with the final Oscar of the evening.

The evening was hosted by Stephanie Violaris, Sophie Bordiehn and Roberta Testori as well as Media and Film Studies staff. Our guest host was Dr Maloney.

Coordinated with the help of Miss Bannister, adverts of Upper Fifth students as well as more work from the Lower and Upper Sixth students was shown during the evening, all of which culminated in a hilarious bloopers montage of the extremely devoted media students.
