PQA Virtual Film Festival 2021 Official Selection

3rd March 2021

After such an extraordinary year. We are pleased to announce the Official Selection of films for our Virtual Film Festival screenings during the Easter break 2021.

The circumstances have not deterred our epic young filmmakers from producing some magnificent work during lockdowns at home and during remote PQA sessions. Some of this work is showcased here along with the very best films produced in the second half of 2019 and 2020 at our Academies.

The online festival screenings will take place on YouTube on the 9th,10th and 11th April 2021. A downloadable Festival Programme will be available for parents and students. Physical awards will be delivered to Academies and presented when we are back face to face for a proper celebration!

We encourage students and their families to reach for the popcorn and snacks, make yourselves comfortable, and enjoy the feature length screenings of fantastic and highly imaginative short films made by PQA Students from all over the UK. Also, giving you a chance to size up the competition and enjoy something completely different!
