BVA winner on BBC London
01.01.70 | Katie Allen
One of the winning entries for last year’s Book Video Awards is to be broadcast on BBC London tonight in time for this evening’s Costa Book of the Year Announcement.
The book video for Sadie Jones’ Costa-shortlisted The Outcast was Felix Wiedermann’s winning entry to the awards. It will be shown on BBC London’s news bulletins at 6.30 and 10.30pm.
The Book Video Awards, in association with The Bookseller, Random House, Play and the National Film & Television School (NFTS), were launched 2007. Three candidates were chosen from students at the NTFS who supplied successful pitches to create book videos for three RH titles.
This year the three film-makers were: Anna Lavalle creating a video for Jacqueline Wilson’s My Sister Jodie, Felix Weidermann for Double Cross by Malorie Blackman, and Leevi Lemmetty for Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud. The overall winner will be announced at the Book Video Awards in March.
The Outcast won the first novel category prize at this year’s Costa Book Awards, and is shortlisted for the £25,000 Book of the Year prize, alongside Sebastian Barry’s The Secret Scripture, Diana Athill’s Somewhere Towards the End, Adam Foulds’ The Broken Word and Just Henry by Michelle Magorian.
