Meanwhile, Alexandra Sage, a Senior Lecturer in Film Production, was also one of the comperes for the event that took place on Saturday 22 March 2014. She was joined by former Roehampton lecturer Dave Tinham.

Finally, In Fabula Veritas, a short film made by current Roehampton students Angela Duarte Faillace, Dasha Sevcenko, Tom Heffernan and Roehampton alumnus Metin Bülent, was selected for screening as part of the competition.

The film engages with children's rights through a reworking of the Little Red Riding Hood myth. It was one of eight films selected for the competition screening.

Meanwhile, William Brown also worked with the Ritzy recently by introducing a screening of Australian-Laotian film, The Rocket, at one of the cinema's recent Discovery Tuesdays events.

Finally, Dasha Sevcenko also recently made a BFI Film Academy Documentary Residential Film on migrant workers in the UK.
