2020 Reigate Annual Film and Television Award Winners

Rather than the usual evening ‘red carpet’ event in the College’s Rispoli Theatre, this year’s RAFTAs took the form of a live Instagram event (at 7pm on 14 May), and a 40 minute video that was released immediately afterwards on YouTube.

The RAFTAs are designed to celebrate the achievements of Upper Sixth students on each of the three Film and Media courses: A Level Film Studies, A Level Media Studies and BTEC Digital Media Production. Here’s a promotional film to get you in the zone!

Congratulations to all the students who were nominated for awards, and a huge ‘well done’ to this year’s exceptional winners, who are listed below.

A massive thank you to A Level Film Studies Teacher Yvonne McCoach, who both coordinated this year’s RAFTAs, and spent several hours pulling together the 40 minute film for YouTube.

So, pull up a chair, hear directly from the judges and watch some clips from the Class of 2020.
