Our student films are good, perhaps the best in the UK (if not the World). Don’t just take our word for it, experience them for yourself! Our most recent graduate films (plus some other gems) are only accessible via our private screening room. Enjoy!

Remarkably Bold Venture of the Rabbit (2000)
by Tim Drage
“The film concerns the activities of a Rabbit and her mummified robot friend who set out to free some ants from the clutches of an evil Mad Scientist. Will they infiltrate his anti-ant plant? Can they defeat his security systems? What’s he got against the ants anyway, and are they as innocent as they seem? Why don’t they rescue that poor bear too? What does it all mean? What’s going on? Whose hands are those? What!?
All these questions, and more, will be asked when you see the film!”
