Mindful of growing concerns within the London Film School’s community, we are taking a number of measures in response to the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. The principle of these measures is to prioritise the health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff, and to reduce the need for our students or staff to attend LFS premises.
We are enormously proud of the Silver Bear Jury Prize win for Rafael Mendoza’s (MAF 192) graduation film Filipiñana at the 70th Berlinale. Read all about the film and the award-winning team behind it here. The film has also been selected to screen at this year's
London Film School was delighted this weekend to hear that LFS student, Rafael Manuel, had won the Silver Bear at the Berlinale Film Festival for the Short Film Jury Prize with his LFS graduation film, Filipiñana!
Director of LFS, Gisli Snaer, said: “We are all tremendously proud of Rafael and the entire Filipiñana crew for producing such a stunning, unique film. Each and every one of them richly deserved to be nominated and win this prestigious award.”
The London Film School, the UK’s longest-standing institution for nurturing filmmaking talent in the UK has announced prolific Director/Writer/Producer Sir Alan William Parker CBE and Gurinder Chadha OBE as Honorary Associates of LFS. The accolade was awarded and presented by Chairman of the School, Greg Dyke at BFI Southbank, with Lord David Puttnam accepting on behalf of Sir Alan Parker OBE.
London Film School is thrilled to announce that Rafael Mendoza’s graduation film Filipiñana will premiere at Berlinale Shorts 2020.
