Prestigious awards shed new light on research into our past and present: from the impact of technology on modern families to a forgotten chapter of British history
The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) announced the winners of their Research in Film Awards 2018 at the BAFTA building in London last week.
Now in their fourth year, the awards are the only awards dedicated to showcasing arts and humanities research through film. The evocative short films – all under 30 minutes – are thought-provoking reflections on our time which include drama, documentary and animation.
The five winners were selected from hundreds of submissions in the different categories and received a trophy as well as £2,000 towards future filmmaking projects. There were two new categories for 2018 – the ‘People on the Move Award: Stories of New Beginnings’ to mark the 70th anniversary of Windrush and the ‘Social Media Short Award’ which showcases some of the best short films tailored for social media.
