‘Bridget’s Birthday’ film set for March 11th in Halifax

Film school students at Brighton College are making a film about a young woman who was killed by her boyfriend.

Bridgit Lee, a 20-year-old student at Brighton, was killed in May.

She had recently moved from the city to the west coast.

Brighton’s Film School’s website has a statement on its Facebook page.

“It’s been over two weeks since the tragic death of a young person and we are incredibly sad to see it go.

We want to do everything we can to make sure that her family and friends can begin to rebuild, to heal and to move forward with her legacy.

We have set out to create a documentary about a girl who was the inspiration for our school and we have the opportunity to show that film to the world in the form of the documentary titled ‘Brigitte’, which will be screened on March 11.

We are very excited to have the privilege of making this film and we can’t wait to see the film, which will hopefully inspire people to remember the lives of these incredible young people.”

Brighton College said it had been in touch with the family of the student and would be “providing support in any way possible” to their recovery.

“We know that this has been a difficult time for all of us and our thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends and colleagues at Brighton,” the statement said.

Brightnsea University has confirmed that the school will be screening the documentary.
