Munnings Proves a Winner
Film maker John Groslin has won this season’s documentary competition with his excellent retelling the story of Sir Alfred Munnings, regarded as the finest painter of horses.
The three independent judges – Bill Allen, Seb Craig and John Worland - heaped praise on his “professionalism”, “best script” and the “dramatic moments” the painter was blinded in one eye in a tragic accident.
Second was John Howden with The Sometime Gardner, filmed in South Africa; and third John Jones with The Rookery, filmed among a seal colony on the Norfolk coast.
The competition attracted five excellent films, reflecting the high quality of film making among members.
