A busy week for Film Club's Chris Shepherd!

The past week has been an eventful one for Film Club's Chris Shepherd, having presented his work at two festivals back-to-back.

On Thursday night, Chris held a mini retrospective at Edge Hill University's Cake Festival, a week-long animation festival attended by both students and industry professionals.

The following night, Chris presented his film The Ringer at Latitude Festival's film arena. The Latitude Festival is an award-winning festival that showcases the very best in music, film and arts.

If you haven't seen it yet, catch a little glimpse of The Ringer for yourself here. Otherwise, keep your eyes peeled for Chris as he whizzes his way around the film circuit.

Film Club's Will Anderson has won a top prize at the 2014 Edinburugh International Film Festival (EIFF) for his Film, Monkey Love Experiments. Will won the award for Outstanding Individual Contribution to a Short Film alongside Co-director and Screenwriter, Ainslie Henderson.

Monkey Love Experiments is a beautiful story inspired by love and follows a monkey who believes he is destined for the moon. The festival jurors had this to say of this film: "With fireworks of poetic ideas we have been shown within the deepest loneliness a heart-breaking love story... Being as stylish as it is simple, this animation and an animated hero with wind in his fluffy hair enters straight into the heart and to tears."

Film Club's Sue Loughlin was also at the festival to take part in an animation panel discussion and to present the 25th McLaren Award for Best New British Animation!

All in all it was a fantastic event! Congratulations Will!
