Yesterday we attended the Childnet’s Film Competition 2017 held at the prestigious British Film Institute in London.
Each year hundreds of primary and secondary schools and youth organisations across the UK submit their internet safety films to the Childnet Film Competition to gain the chance to see their films shown at a private screening at London’s BFI and win great prizes for their school or youth organisation.
From all of the entries the Childnet team choose the top 3 entries in each category, these then become the finalists.
The finalists were invited to attend a private screening at the BFI were their films were judged by industry experts; David Austin OBE – Chief Executive, British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), Joanna van der Meer – Film Tutor and Family Learning Programmer, BFI Southbank and Catherine McAllister – Lead for online safety and Head of Safeguarding in the Children’s department, BBC.
We watched all…
