A Melbourne university student has taken top honours at the 2018 Ipswich Film Festival for Youth (IFFY).

Jenae Hall was crowned the overall winner for her three-minute stop-motion film Remaining Grandad.

“It was inspired by the feelings of visiting my own grandad in a nursing home,” the 23-year-old Victorian College of the Arts student said.

“In all it took a whole year to bring together, the first half scripting and storyboarding and the other half building sets, looking for props and filming.”

Hall has written, directed and animated six short films and her work has been screened at film festivals across the world including the UK, US, Canada, Greece, France and Egypt.

In 2017 her short film Nest won the Special Jury Award at the Acharya Tulsi Short Film Festival in India.
