A FILM BY ABIGAIL IN OFFICIAL SELECTION FOR 11th LONDON SHORT FILM FESTIVAL
After a year of gradual exposure and festivals for my short documentary A FILM BY ABIGAIL, it has now been selected for a high profile event and is a part of the official selection for the 11th LONDON SHORT FILM FESTIVAL taking place in January 2014! The festival had over 1200 British films entered into it and 300 were chosen for screenings. Check out some of the things said about the festival below:
“A London bastion of cutting-edge short films and multimedia” - The Times
"A festival not afraid to take creative risks and nurture new talent, something rarely seen in this age of austerity and conformity." - i-D Magazine
“The Best Short Film Festival in the World” -Guardian Guide
The London Short Film Festival is a "BAFTA-recognised festival", meaning it is on a list of the most professionally important and accredited film festivals collated worldwide. The list contains renowned cinematic competitions such as Cannes, Sundance, Venice and Toronto. Being a part of a festival on the list opens up possibilities for potential funding/grants and support for the film from the British Council, as well as your progression as a filmmaker. In no small measure, this is what I've been trying to achieve since finishing my MA in 2012 and I'm very happy (and also relieved) to reach it! One step further...
"The London Short Film Festival, now in its 11th year, is recognised as the premiere UK showcase for cutting-edge UK independent film... Renowned for daring cross-arts programming, we showcase the very best of the country’s raw talent... a Mecca for the UK’s young creative talent and a significant date in the UK film calender." - via www.shortfilms.org.uk (LSFF website)
