Coleg Cambria Creative Media students made it to the last three in an anti-tobacco and anti-smoking short film competition run by Cut Films aimed at raising awareness of the dangers of smoking amongst 11-25 year olds.

The National Cut Film Awards 2017 received over 300 videos within the differing age categories. The competition involves creating an anti-smoking video to persuade young people not to smoke.

The team from the Creative Media Production course at Coleg Cambria which included Nathan Knifton, Liam Williams, Xena Bush and Ieuan Tarran made it into the top three in the 19-21 category for their short film ‘Make The Right Choice’.

Hosted by Cut Films and Roy Castle Foundation, the event was held in the Curzon cinema in Soho, London where the students were privileged to have a Q&A session with the writer of Eastenders to gain industry insight.

James Smith, Cambria Media Tutor said: “I am so proud of the hard work the students have put into this competition. Over 300 videos entered and to be nominated and bring home a trophy is a huge and well deserved success.’
