Blue Blood is a documentary film that was released in UK cinemas in 2007 and showed on BBC2's Storyville in 2008. The film follows the paths of five students from Oxford University as they try to make it onto the Oxford University Amateur Boxing Club Varsity squad. Those who do will get to face off against students from the University of Cambridge and earn the right to call themselves a "Blue".
The film was nominated for the Variety Magazine New Documentary Award and for Best Film in the 2008 Evening Standard Film Awards. Director, Stevan Riley, was nominated for Best British Newcomer in the London Critics Circle Awards 2008.
The film was shot and edited by the director Stevan Riley. The film was produced by Rafael Marmor and Stevan Riley.
Amusingly, the film's cover and DVD case used (without permission: or more accurately, permission given only for posters and only with credit given, neither of which conditions were adhered to) an image of the Oxford skyline taken by a former Oxford University student.
