Congratulations to Anne Milne for winning ‘Best Student Film’ at this years BAFTA SCOTLAND New Talent Awards. Year 2 MFA Anne picked up her award for directing Maria’s Way. The documentary patiently observes a day in the life of Maria, positioned on a famed pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Maria sits by the roadside outside her house greeting and counting the travellers as they pass by, a tradition that she has done for years and that her mother did before her.
SDI supported the film which will play in a number of film festivals worldwide in the coming months. Anne is currently shooting her MFA film. Looking forward to seeing the results.
