    "I am honoured to be awarded the Melbourne International Film Festival Screen Studies Prize and extremely grateful for the generous award of $1000 and MIFF 2019 Festival Passport. At present I am studying honours in Screen & Cultural Studies and the festival passport will provide me with an excellent opportunity to further develop my skills in film review and criticism at the Melbourne International Film Festival. I also hope to use the cash prize to assist in funding a short film I am currently developing."
