Film Student, Anna Bant Wins ‘Best Student Short’ at London Festival
Huge congratulations to film student Anna Bant whose short film, Abode, won ‘Best Student Short’ at The London Shorts Film Festival, and has been nominated for two more festivals this week including The Paus Film Festival and Castaway Goole Online Film Festival.
Abode is a drama short film following a young girl, Becky Bromwell, escaping her abusive partner. After confronting her friend, she finds herself venturing the streets in rejection from society. This leads to her questioning where her humble abode really is. Anna says, “As a crew we worked hard in preparation and production for this film, including the isolation of cast and crew members at different times due to Covid. We were able to overcome this and continue to create a cinematic film.”
The London Shorts Film Festival creates an environment for visibility & development of indie filmmakers and also supports community of British filmmakers. “We at London Shorts believe that cinema is not just an another field of industry in our country but also a tool for reflecting our society and expression.”
Anna tells us, “It feels awesome to win our first festival for Best Short Student Film at London Shorts and we are excited to submit ‘Abode’ further into other festivals! We are very grateful for the admiration towards the film from audiences so far and the support we’ve had along the way!”
