The annual Hurst Inter-House Film Competition is more of a Film Festival than a competition: a celebration not only of the staggering creativity of the students, but also of the liberating approach to education this great school offers. Every year, each of the 11 houses gets the opportunity to work with Mike Carter, the College’s Writer in Residence, to plan, draft and refine their script before MCN Productions brings a film crew to their doorstep. The students perform in and direct their own short film. One month later the results of their hard work are screened at the Orion Cinema and finally to the entire school with nominations, certificates and awards.
The film above, ‘Almost Dreaming’, made by Shield House won Best Film in the competition. You can watch a few of the other films below.
We also recently made a Promotional Film for Hurst.
