London Short Film Festival has created a new series of events. The first of which is:
LSSF: MEET THE FILMMAKERS – Wednesday 24th April.
A chance to look at the careers of 3 filmmakers who’ve had success in the London Short Film Festival; they will talk about how the Festival impacted on their work, and what they feel the importance of the Festival is to the filmmaking community. There will be a chance to follow their careers and to see what they have planned for the future.
Nick studied Art and English Literature at Exeter University and Art School, and came to filmmaking via directing pop videos for bands such as Leftfield, Gallon Drunk, Huggy Bear, Prolapse, David Holmes, Baby Bird, Manic Street Preachers and many many more. Nick has continually been making films, documentaries and art projects, including collaborations with Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller on films about Depeche Mode fans and counter-culture artist Bruce Lacey. His film EKKI MUKK for Icelandic rockers Sigur Ros won the British Council Award for Best UK Short at the 2013 London Short Film Festival.
Muriel studied Screenwriting in Amsterdam and ran a production company in The Netherlands before settling in London. She returned to studies for a Masters in Filmmaking & Directing at the London Film School, where she graduated with distinction. Her graduation film GOOD NIGHT screened at the 2013 London Short Film Festival before being nominated for a short film BAFTA. Over the past four years she has written, directed and shot several award winning short films and documentaries.
As an actress, Kate has appeared in numerous films, including Neil Jordan’s Mona Lisa, Jack and Sarah, Cry Freedom, The Krays, and Croupier. In 2006 she graduated in screenwriting from the National Film and Television School, and subsequently wrote two plays in Channel 4’s Coming Up series, IMPRINTS (2007) and LITTLE BILL UM (2008), the latter also being her directorial debut. Her short film SHOOT ME starring Claire Skinner and Paul Andrew Williams and produced by Rankin, screened at the 2013 London Short Film Festival.
Tickets to LSFF: 2013 and Beyond are available for purchase at a cost of £30. This one-off payment allows each participant to attend as many sessions as they like and we fully welcome those who would like to attend the full programme. When you have booked your place, please email email@example.com with your selection.
A limited number of DAY PASSES are available for a fee of £8. Please message firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
LSFF & BEYOND is supported by Creative Skillset, and builds on the success of the Festival’s industry programme, beginning at the ICA on Weds 24 April and continuing to LSFF2014 in January. A short film surgery, panel discussion and networking drinks, each month will be in collaboration with Festival partners including Shooting People, Channel Four, Britdoc, Underwire Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest, BAFTA, Film London, the British Council and more.
Each event will be split into three distinct categories:
Submit your film (as a rough cut, or partially completed) for a chance to present your work to a panel of film professionals and receive feedback on how to improve and foster your filmmaking skills. The feedback you receive will help you evolve the film for eligibility into the next London Short Film Festival, so as we can actively track the developments in your work. If you would like to submit your film, please email email@example.com with a link and accompanying filmography. Selected filmmakers will also receive a free short session with the Film Festival Doctor to discuss a festival strategy.
Each event will feature an hour long panel discussion aimed at enhancing your film knowledge on subjects such as pitching, script writing, female representation in film, the future of film festivals and digital distribution.
Continue the conversation late into the evening with fellow like-minded filmmakers and industry professionals.
Tickets are priced at £30 for a total of 11 events or £8 for a DAY PASS with some of the UK’s biggest film organisations. Each event will feature a panel discussion, film surgery where you can preview your film draft to industry professionals and a networking session.
