Andrea Harkin BAFTA Nomination
We’re delighted with the news that Andrea Harkin has been nominated in the Best British Short category with her film ‘The Party’ in this years British Academy Film Awards.
Andrea cut her teeth with us, making her first short ‘Just Like Me’ with local youth actors in the streets of Granton on our Script to Screen short film scheme.
Going on to make the beautiful short ‘The Flyer’ on our Streetwise film scheme, Andrea was nominated for Best Writer at BAFTA Scotland’s New Talent Awards, with the film’s female lead landing the Best Actor award.
Talent scouted by NFTS, Andrea went off to study Directing there, producing more quality work at the film school and upon graduation, whilst directing TV drama for BBC in Northern Ireland and upcoming BBC drama ‘Clique’ shot here in Edinburgh.
The team were also delighted to welcome Andrea home to be our Directing tutor on our BFI Film Academy Scotland Residential last summer.
A massive well done from us all Andrea, and here’s to that amazing talent shining even brighter!
