Film student Rhiannon McHarrie has been honoured with the 2017 “Errol Flynn Filmhouse Award for Achievement in Film and Screen Studies” and accepted the award at the cinema today.
The University of Northampton Film and Screen Studies student, who graduated recently, was selected for her outstanding level of passion and enthusiasm for the study of film and TV, going above and beyond what is required on the three years of the degree.
Dr David Simmons, Senior Lecturer in English and Screen Studies at The University of Northampton commented: “’Rhiannon is an incredibly deserving winner of the Errol Flynn Filmhouse Award. In what was an exceptional cohort of students, Rhiannon stood out as both academically gifted and genuinely passionate about the field of Screen Studies. All the staff wish her the very best for the future.”
Martin Sutherland, Chief Executive of the Errol Flynn Filmhouse added: “We are delighted to be able to sponsor this award, as part of our ongoing commitment to supporting the next generation of film makers in Northamptonshire.”
