Moments in love

Canberra Short Film Festival

Lucy P is a media student at Narrabundah College. She has submitted her short film; 'moments in love' into the Canberra Short Film Festival. Her short film was selected as a finalist in the U18's category.  "My intention in creating ‘moments in love’ is to encapsulate a part of my teenage experience. This is a personal expose, on themes that have played a major role in shaping my identity and my growing up. We tell stories to form connections with one another, to create discussion and better understand one another. 'moments in love' is my story and I hope you enjoy it."- Lucy P.
