This week is the kick off of Canneseries, a five-week long immersive screenwriting residency. The residency, which has been developed by UCA in association with Serial Eyes (DFFB, Berlin) has selected eight talented international authors to develop projects over the course of the programme. Sophie McVeigh, a 2017 MA Screenwriting graduate has been selected for the first intake of this prestigious programme. When asked for comment, Sophie stated:
Zeidan, whose graduate short film, ‘Three Centimetres’ was screened as part of the generation 14plus selection won the Teddy Award for Best Short Film. The jury released the following statement about their decision:
LFS MA Filmmaking graduate, Lara Zeidan, from Beirut, Lebanon, made her way to the Berlinale '18 this past week. Lara's short ‘Three Centimetres’ was selected for the Generation 14plus competition, a section that is "home to cinematic works that are thematically and aesthetically linked to the experiences of children and young people."
An LFS graduate Avi Kleinburger has just shown his film "ATASH" at the London Film Festival after it had won the International Critics Prize at Cannes in June this year.
