'The Other Side of the Lens' 👀 – a collaborative film by Animation student Silvia Hubavenska, and Film student Stoyan Gyurov. ⁠

"This film is about two worlds colliding when a man reunites with his wife in the most bizarre way – inside her own camera. This is a story about love divided between the dark reality and the heavenly dream." – Silvia ⁠

Our very own Konstanty Mvrzynski featured in the @guardian's "ones to watch" article. 🤩⁠

"Mvrzynski's largely hand-crafted couture collection is an ode to the construction of master architects: Madeleine Vionnet and Charles James. Expressed through chiselling cloth around the body, approaching contemporary dress with sculptural tension and geometric precision."⁠

We're incredibly excited to announce that street artist and political activist – Banksy – is to be made an Honorary Professor of UCA, in recognition of his humanitarian efforts and the impact he has had on the global arts scene. 🕊⁠

His Honorary Professorship will be granted during our graduation ceremony next week, but as his identity remains a mystery it will be conferred upon an empty chair. ⁠
