With limited time in our running order it was impossible to fit all the fantastic projects our media students have created this academic year into the Ayrshire Film Festival. So our students have been on tenterhooks waiting to discover which films have made the cut.
Not just our students but students from other schools, colleges and universities submitted excellent work. But the space for their selections is also limited.
We have five awards in total. Three of them are internal awards for Ayrshire College students, one for the external submissions and then the highly coveted audience award which everyone is in with a chance of winning.
The Shortlisted Films For This Years Ayrshire Film Festival Are...
For our internal Level 5 award we have three group productions all from our Introduction To Film And Broadcasting course.
Mystique - A detective struggles to solve a crime until he figures out there may be treachery on the inside.
Outcast - A young outsider gains the courage to fight back but an alter ego may be pushing him too far.
