Bradford Film Festival
James and Oliver Phelps who play the Weasley twins in the Harry Potter series were also in attendence, thus allowing us to get autographs and pictures with them.
We then went to see the films being shown in screening 1 (12pm - 1pm) and there was an interesting variety of films, contrasting from projects made from students all the way in the Burkina Faso, back round to Ilkley's previous A2 students' music videos. It was interesting to see the work that goes on from other schools, especially the one that was selected for The Advisor's Award, entitled The Lifeguard. This was a documentary style project which followed a young lifeguard around his day to day duties, with it eventually being revealed that he was not in fact a lifeguard, and he had not won an award for his duties, as he claimed he had continuously.
