Young filmmakers getting ready for film premiere

Student filmmakers studying on the prestigious BFI Film Academy at Brighton Film School are preparing for a premiere of two short films at the historic Duke of York’s Cinema, Brighton.

The students, who were selected after a rigorous application process, have studied the craft of filmmaking at Brighton Film School since September 2015 and will be premiering their work on the 28th February 2016. The event is set to welcome industry professionals, friends and family keen to see the talent emerging from this course.

Eva Riley (award winning and Cannes Film Festival 2015 selected film maker, ‘Patriot’), guest lecturer on the course, said:

“It’s been a real delight to work with these young filmmakers, they’re incredibly talented and I’m really excited to see their work on the big screen. It’s a tremendous achievement for any filmmaker to have their work screened in a cinema. This is an opportunity to see the work of tomorrows filmmakers, today.“

Anna Deamer, Course Leader for the BFI Film Academy course said:

“The BFI Academy is a rigorous, creative course, introducing students to all aspects of the film industry. It’s part of a national programme and offers an accredited NCFE qualification, developed by the British Film Institute, specifically aimed at preparing the next generation of young talent to work in the Industry. This course offers a wealth of other opportunities to participants including an exciting alumni programme run by BAFTA and opportunities to study on other BFI courses and training programmes.

I’m very proud of this group of students and everything they’ve achieved and I look forward to seeing the results on the big screen, at my favourite cinema, the Duke of York’s”.

The programme, begins at 10am, is strictly ticketed and includes a screening of ‘Blame’, ‘Phonecall’ and a behind-the-scenes documentary. The films are entirely written and produced by students on the 18-week course, offered to young people from 16-19 years old. Over the duration of this course students have had the opportunity to learn from industry professionals, attend CINECITY Brighton

Film Festival screenings and work independently, creating their own films.
