Huge congratulations to our PhD candidate Alex Widdowson for picking up a second award for his animated film 'Drawing on Autism'. The short was awarded the Student's Blue Riband Award for Best AnimaDoc at the Rising of Lusitania AnimaDoc Film Festival in Poland. The judges commented that they awarded the Blue Riband...
...for skilfully juggling the perspectives of the story and taking up an important topic in a humanly way
This is Alex's second award after scooping the Best Doctoral or Early Career Film of the Year at the 2021 Research in Film Awards last year.
Not one to ever rest on his laurels, Alex is busy planning his workshop on Animated Documentary Ethics for the The Festival of Animation in Berlin on the 1st October.
