Short Film Award for SWFTA client



SWFTA is thrilled to highlight the work of Carrie Hill, whose short film of Torbay cyclist Colin Lewis, and which included archive footage from SWFTA, has been awarded Best Short Film Commission at the Two Short Nights Festival.

The film entitled 'Old, Grey and Fast' directed by Carrie Hill, documented the life and career (briefly) of ex-professional cyclist, and Torbay resident, Colin Lewis.

Judges said of Carrie's work: "This was a touching film that wouldn’t have been out of place in Fresh Choices and Old Conclusions, very well shot, with a mixture of archive and new footage – Carrie Hill is certainly director to watch. This was without doubt my favourite of all the bursary films."

Congratulations Carrie!
