We’re proud to see further screenings for MA Filmmaking graduate Lara Zeidan’s grad film ‘Three Centimetres’ at the only LGBT Festival in Russia, Side By Side.
Sophie McVeigh on CanneSeries and signing up with an agent: Sophie graduated from the MA in Screenwriting (MAS) in 2017 and will be known to following MAS cohorts as one of the students that course leaders like to hold up as the golden mean when it comes to essay writing. A prior teacher and hobby writer, Sophie is one of those people who decided to give up on it all in order to dedicate herself to screenwriting, starting with the MA at London Film School (LFS). The results have paid off.
LFS is delighted to announce the appointment of Femi Kolade as Head of Studies, starting from January 2019. This latest appointment at the School brings together a wealth of filmmaking expertise and academic talent, offering opportunities to develop the School as a beacon of excellence, innovation and inclusion in filmmaking education.
So far accepted onto the shortlist for the BAFTA Student Film Awards and admitted to the Palm Springs International Film Festival, we think it is safe to say that director and LFS graduate Franco Volpi’s graduation film is doing pretty well!
'Sol de Agosto (August Sun)' is a dramatic comedy, the film is a character study about a ‘son reconnecting with his ailing mother while mired in bureaucratic paperwork, heavy traffic, long queues and bad manners’.
Following his success, Franco sat down with us to talk about his time at LFS and how it has shaped his practice.
London Film School (LFS) is delighted to announce that the award-winning film director and dedicated educator, Gisli Snaer, has been appointed as the new Director of the School with immediate effect.
Jacqueline Lentzou’s latest short film has been awarded the Leica Cine Discovery Award at the Cannes Film Festival’s annual Critics’ Week after having its international premiere there.
Lentzou, who was born in Athens and who graduated with distinction from London Film School in 2013, wrote and directed ‘Hector Malo: The Last Day of the Year’, a black comedy-drama set in her native Greece, which tells the story of a young woman on New Year’s Eve.
From high drama to sci-fi dystopias, Vincenzo “Vinnie” Marranghino has shot it all. Known around school for his infectious laugh and epic moustache, the winner of the 2017 LFS Cinematography Award, sponsored by Panalux, sat down with us to discuss his journey to, through and after film school.
The Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) is fast approaching, from 20 June, and three London Film School films are screening. In competition are graduate films by Lara Zeidan’s ‘Three Centimetres’, Camille Nock’s ‘Bo & Mei’, and Elzbieta Piekacz’s ‘At dawn of flowers open the gates of paradise’ all screening as part of the “Shorts: Dream Images” programme.
