“Fragile as glass” wins CampusDoc Filmfestival

“Fragile as glass” is the winner of the sixth CampusDoc Filmfestival. The twenty minute documentary was made by Anne van Riel and Jessica Buijs. The film tells the story of Frans (70) who’s had a traumatic youth in Limburg (The Netherlands). Jury president Jan van Galen: “This story has everything. It’s impressive, sad and also hopeful to see the development that the main character has made.”

The festival was very crowded and the quality of the films was higher than ever before. The second place is for documentary “Biohacking – we need an upgrade” (Laura Okkersen and Floor Brock) en the third price goes to “A thousand percent” (Marije Huijsman and Sietse van der Molen).

CampusDoc Filmfestival is an annual festival where documentaries made by students of the Utrecht School of Journalism premiere. “A thousand percent” is the first documentary in the history of the festival that has not been made by Utrecht students, but students of the Ede School of Journalism. The award ceremony was hosted by Jeroen Overbeek, Maaike Timmermans and Jildou van Opzeeland.
