Bond Students Win at Gold Coast Film Festival!

Recently HSS students Casey Radford and Ozlem Gundogdu celebrated great success at the Gold Coast Film Festival by winning the competition with their short film “Welcome to the Gold Coast”

The win also secured them screening rights at the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival in the USA.

Casey is studying a Bachelor of Arts with majors in Film and Journalism and Ozlem is studying a Bachelor of Multimedia with her major in Film. Both students are Gold Coast locals, hailing from Varsity College.

Casey said of their win “I personally think Bond has had a massive help in getting my passionate about film again - I showed up to the Bond University Open Day last year with barely any idea of what I wanted to do, until I took the Film talk/tour with Michael Sergi and decided straight away that doing a film course, with some added journalism, was definitely what I was wanting to do with my future. Ozlem agrees that Bond has helped us immensely with getting us to winning a competition and giving us the help we need to push us to work on what we love. We get a lot of support, and constructive criticism, from our lecturers/tutors at Bond and I think that is what is one of the things that has helped us out a lot”.
