Film Making and TV production rewards students with festival screening

How Film Making Activities give students amazing opportunities at PQA.


Film students from PQA Wolverhampton travelled to the Millennium Point in Birmingham on Sunday 10th November to see themselves on the big screen as part of the Birmingham Film Festival. With 10 films from a number of academies taking part and a question and answer session featuring the star of CBBCs The Dumping Ground Kia Pegg the occasion was an exciting opportunity for students to experience a little of the red carpet magic.


Principal Julian Elcock said “We have worked hard to bring this fantastic opportunity to our students and the guys at Birmingham Film Festival have set up an amazing event. The students have had photos taken with Kia and met her, they were able to ask her lots of questions and then see themselves up on the big screen”.


10 films were shows with A Quest In The Woods by PQA Sutton Coldfield winning the coveted Best Film award.


The partnership between PQA and Birmingham Film Festival was headed up by PQA Wolverhampton who coordinated the entries from local academies. “We loved every minute of it and have already agreed to run the event again in 2020 with more films and more students getting the ‘red carpet’ experience. Who knows we may even have some students making the jump from here to the main festival…”
