‘Victoria Street’ Crowned the Winner
Tourism and film came together in a spectacular celebration this month as short film Victoria Street was crowned the winner of the Welcome to Yorkshire Student Film Festival, a partnership with Sheffield Hallam University and Screen Yorkshire.
Four 90 second films, made by Sheffield Hallam University’s media students, were shortlisted by partners in the competition, with the final vote going to the public. The beautifully shot winning film, Victoria Street features a performance by Sheffield Poet Laureate Warda Yassin, about the different people coming together to make Victoria Street in Broomhall. The film was co-directed by Asma Kabadeh and Aaron Hopper. Congratulations also go to Victoria cinematographers, Bob Gilbert and Rita Figueiras Machado Rapaso Pais, as well as Tom Fell and Magda Zajkowska. The awards were presented in the Sheffield Hallam University screening theatre on 10th November, at an event which premiered each of the eleven competition entries to a live audience.
The winning Victoria Street film crew will join a live screen production set for a day with Screen Yorkshire.
