German film wins top Goethe-Institut prize

Digital Days competition winners

Sam Howard and Finley Nolan’s short stop-motion German-language film Rache ist süß has won the first prize of £200 in the Goethe-Institut’s national Digital Days film competition, with six more Stockport Grammar pupils being named runners-up.

Pupils worked on their entries on the topic of food and eating in their German lessons during the last two weeks of the summer term, with now-third year pupils Sam and Finley putting in extra hours at home to finish their project.

The judges chose the film, which will soon be published on the Stockport Grammar and Goethe-Institut websites, as the best from a field of over 100 entries and praised Sam and Finley for their creativity, movie-making skills and grasp of the German language.

Fellow third year pupils Eileen Chen, Lauren Jones, Katy Brown, Sam Howard, Ruby Wright and Laura Welch have also been presented with certificates, t-shirts and DVDs after being chosen as runners-up in the competition.
