The third annual Moving Image Awards was held on Friday 13th January at the BFI Southbank in London to celebrate the work of some of the UK's brightest young filmmakers.
Our special guest director, writer and actress Alice Lowe presented a Film-makers Masterclass at an audience made up of students from across the country. Alice made her screenwriting debut in the award-winning Sightseers in 2012 as well as appearing in film and TV productions including Locke (2013), Hot Fuzz (2007) and The Mighty Boosh (2007).
