The Graduate Showcase will take place 25th – 29th July 2022 at BFI Southbank.
London Film School’s Graduate Showcase is an opportunity to meet and celebrate the latest cohort of London Film School graduates, watch their work and create a launching point for stepping into the industry. Guests will have the opportunity to connect with the next generation of filmmaking talent and see their work.
Alumni and student highlights
Throughout May our Alumni made a significant contribution to the wider industry, not only with recognition in the form of awards and nominations but with originality and dedication, that makes LFS alumni stand out from the crowd.
LFS are delighted that four Grad films screened at this year’s Fastnet Film Festival, an independent festival dedicated to bringing together established and first-time filmmakers. The festival shows competition films in the village hall, pubs, restaurants, shops, galleries and on the sides of buildings, throughout the village of Schull over the last weekend in May. We talked to two LFS grads, Prospero Pensa who made Macchiato and Oscar Albert who made School Ties, about their experiences of filmmaking, the festival circuit and what it was like to study at LFS.
London Film School graduate Masha Novikova has been awarded joint third prize at La Cinef 2022 for her short film, Glorious Revolution. Set in 2014 at the height of the Ukrainian revolution, the film depicts a mother’s loss, as her son is killed while protesting in Independence Square. Her attempt to bury him as a hero clashes with the corruption in the bureaucratic system, testing her view of Ukraine. We spoke to Masha to find out more about her film and her experiences of studying at London Film School.
Could you explain the story behind Glorious Revolution?
Many congratulations to the crew of graduate film after a room! The personal, bold short won the Pardino d’argento Swiss Life for the National Competition at the 74th Locarno Film Festival.
