WEXO are delighted to support the Student Film Festival London
From the 3rd to the 5th of February, SFFLondon 2012 will transform the capital into a hub of global filmmaking talent with an array screenings, workshops and networking film-inspired parties. With over 80 films showing over three days and some of our competition films selected for prestigious awards such as the Grierson (Caring for Calum – winner), BAFTA (Abuelas – nominated) and Academy Awards (The Road Home – longlisted) there is no saying what hidden treasures our international premieres will reveal.
Filmmakers will have their pick with a range of industry events from an interview with Music Video producer director Trudy Bellinger, a masterclass with BAFTA award-winner documentary film-maker Brian Woods and Emmy award winner journalist and film-maker Sorious Samura, a Pinewood Studios’ post-production seminar, a Rushes short films monetizing and distribution class, to a TV and Film award winning writer director Nick Reed’s Acting live workshop and many more.
Finally, from the opening night Shortwave film competition launch and London Short Film Festival’s ‘Student Film Award’screening and party to the closing night Wong Kar Wai themed gala at the Apollo Picadilly with live improvised film scores, as well as Midnight Madness Quizz and drinks, the Friday night fusion film events celebration with the cinematic band Making Tracks and Gorilla Film Magazine’s wild wild games; there will be plenty of cause for merriment and opportunities to network, rekindle a film lover romance or take a walk on the wild side.
Student Film Festival is London’s first international film festival solely for student films, a platform for young filmmakers to showcase their work and to meet established industry professionals. Founded by enterprising young people for young people, Student Film Festival aims to support aspiring filmmakers, set designers, actors –cast and crew alike, to bring their colours to the future of cinema. SFFLondon 2012 will run for three days, and will be held across the 6 campuses of University of the Arts, London (UAL). The festival will screen feature film nominees and a selection of shorts representing the best student work from both British and world cinema judged by experts such as Simon Pegg, Kevin Loader, Barry Purves, Trudy Bellinger and many more… One of WEXO’s film clients will be offering the Best Director an internship with them.
