The Cheap Thrills: Zero Budget Film Festival is an annual event screening films by amateur and professional film-makers. The only specification is that all films must have been made with a zero budget. Pupils from the school’s film and animation club successfully submitted their film, ‘The Test’. The film screened alongside fifty other films.
It was awarded the joint highest score by the festival jury and went on to win the Best Drama award. ‘The Test’ is a about a group of students who work together to cheat on their maths test.
Festival organiser, Martin Currie described the film as “possibly the best school production I have ever seen”.
