Festival success for 'The Kindness of Strangers'

Congratulations to Brighton Film School lecturer Alkin Emirali and his latest film 'The Kindness of Strangers', for making official selection  for the prestigious BAFTA nominating,  Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2016.

Shot in 16 gruelling hours overnight, The Kindness of Strangers was written, directed and produced by Alkin Emirali, a Writer/Director and lecturer at Brighton Film School. His production crew included talented industry professionals like Cinematographer Dom Jones and Production Sound Mixer Kirstie Howell, and some bright newcomers in the shape of a number of Brighton Film School students, who graduated from the Film Production BA (Hons) Top-up Degree this year.

An uncompromising and dark film with no redemption for the two characters -played brilliantly by Ingvild Deila and Nathaniel Tapley- the film recently made the official selection for the prestigious BAFTA nominating, Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2016.
