I am very pleased to announce that The Jumper has picked up its second award! A few weeks ago I spent a very enjoyable afternoon at the Watershed watching short films and taking part in seminars as part of the first ever Jump Cut Festival, hosted by students at Bristol University. In the evening we headed over to Zero Degrees for the awards ceremony, where I was honoured to accept the ‘Bristol Bound‘ award for best Bristol film, awarded to The Jumper.
The whole festival was extremely well organised and very professionally hosted, and I am excited to see how it will expand and mature in the coming years. Many thanks to Antonia and the rest of the Jump Cut team for the award (and very generous cheque!) and for creating such a lively and inspiring festival.
P.S. Look out for an awkward and slightly rushed interview I did for UBTV on the night. I imagine it’ll be quite an entertaining watch…!
