Nominated at the Young Director Award


23 June 2021

A huge congratulations to our very own Louis Hollis for his Young Director Award nomination in the Passion Project category for his excellent film Shrovetide.

“Our sporting identities are most commonly determined by proximity to local clubs and teams, allegiances which last a lifetime. However for the people of Ashbourne their commitment is not just to a team but to a game itself, Shrovetide football. This is sport in one of its oldest and purest forms.”

Max Vitali and Grammy award-winning Jamaican rap artist Koffee team up to bring us a most engaging end of year film from H&M. Koffee’s poem and Max’s film combine in a sincere and humble wish that the future will better than this shit-show of a year…

Farewell to endless days in sweats
The unmade bed, the unwashed hair
Hello encounters anywhere
Hello to life without regrets

Instil the urgency to mend
The planet and what else is wrecked
Let things we wasted resurrect
Here’s to forever, not the end

Bring on the night, bring everyone
Come rays of light across the sky
The year is fading, say goodbye
The future world has just begun
