UWE Bristol graduate Lindsey Parietti has won a Student BAFTA award for her nature documentary Blood island. The film director picked up the gong at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Student Film Awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Friday evening.

Lindsey, who graduated with a master’s degree in wildlife film making last year, said: “Being recognised by BAFTA is a huge vote of confidence and hopefully a sign that the world is ready for the kind of stories I want to tell. I could hardly believe how many people filled the Theater at the Ace Hotel for the screening and the caliber of the other nominees sets the bar unbelievably high for emerging filmmakers!

“By far, the best part of the awards was talking to people who were moved by this insane story just the same way I was. If people watch the film and challenge themselves to reconsider our relationship with the natural world and the power we’ve taken over other lives, then that would be the greatest honour.
