Charlottesville Student Filmmakers Receive Awards at Festivals
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Two films produced by students from the Charlottesville community have received awards in national and worldwide competitions.
The film "59 Seconds" won the 2019 Silver World Medal for the New York Festival’s World's Best TV and Film awards.
The 10-minute film was created by five students as part of a workshop through in Charlottesville.
“I was obviously really excited that we won this award, but because I've been doing these camps for so long it's not exactly the awards that matter the most to me,” Tee Dickinson, who produced the award-winning film, said. “I could've made a film that's gone on to win multiple awards or has gone on to win no awards and still be content with the movie we produced.”
The other student film called “Margo" won best animation award at the Sunny Side Up Film Festival, which is held in Oklahoma.
