Jani Ilomäki, student of our Degree Programme in Film and Television, is the winner of the Blue Sea Film Festival Golden Baltic Herring Award last weekend.

His film "Awakening" also won the first prize in the student film competition of the festival. The jury statement was: “The story-telling was poetic, entertaining and concise. The story poetically illustrated one of the more profound and personal moments in the development of a child.”

The synopsis of the film is: "A boy sees a girl. A girl sees a boy"

In addition his also his films Juurtuneet (In a Rut) and Ajatuksia kuolevaisuudesta (Thoughts about dying) were invited to the festival.
