Bournemouth University film wins two awards at international film festival
15 August 2012
Rufus Stone, a short film executively produced by Bournemouth University’s Dr Kip Jones, has just scooped two awards at the Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF).
The film was the only short to win in two categories at the prestigious festival: the Grand prize in the ‘Alternative Spirit’ category and the ‘Youth Jury Award for best GLBT film’.
The Rhode Island International Film Festival consisted of six days and nights of screenings, meetings and greetings featured more than 200 films selected from more than 4,000 entrants.
Dr Kip Jones said, “Winning at prestigious film festivals such as RIIFF is important in getting the film seen by a wide audience. This is the kind of impact that we imagined from the outset of the research project itself”.
“I am particularly pleased for our director, Josh Appignanesi, who took on board the concept of fusion of research and a professional film and visually brought it to life through Rufus Stone.”
