Annabelle Pangborn, Director of the Northern Film School, said: “We are very proud of our students’ achievements and delighted that they have been nominated for these prestigious awards.
“It is a real endorsement of their creative ambition, imagination and technical craft which, together, fuel the power of their storytelling.
“It is this talent and skill which will drive their professional careers as the filmmakers of the future.”

Heart of the House follows a clockmaker within the North Yorkshire town of Knaresborough who is about to retire and his struggle to find an apprentice to take over his business. He has no choice but to shut down and sell all his clocks.
Goodbye looks at the emotions of a young girl after she is torn apart by her cat following a devastating accident, and Curtains looks at a young actress determined to self-destruct.
