Canneseries Series | Greg Simmons "TV is taking things to another level in terms of deep level storytelling"
April saw the return of Canneseries, the major annual TV festival running alongside Cannes. Within the Festival ran Canneseries Institute, a series writing residency which welcomed eight international students to Cannes, from March 5 to April 11, 2019. Two such students proudly came from London Film School – MA Screenwriting grads Greg Simmons and Päivi Kotro-Brenner.
London Film School was voted in Variety's Entertainment Education Report: The Best Films Schools for 2019.
This highly respected digital and print publication, established for 113 years, focuses on business analysis and insights of the entertainment industries, included London Film School for the second time around.
There are more ways than ever before to stay engaged with LFS, and as summer approaches, we are delighted to announce a series of events taking place on campus across the Spring Term, including our LFS CONNECTS series, MA Screenwriting Open Evening and MA Filmmaking Campus Tours.
“It’s very important to foster dialogue and cooperation between the young creatives in Europe” - London Film School to be special guests at German film festival
A delegation of filmmakers from London Film School has been invited to present at the Festival Max Ophüls Preis in Saarbrücken this month.
The festival, which will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year, takes place from the 14 to 20 January and is Germany’s most important forum for up-and-coming German-speaking filmmakers.
LFS Governor Olivier Kaempfer also to take part in Q&A with Director of LSFF and BFI LFF shorts programme, Philip Ilson.
London Film School will be represented by no less than 12 screenings at the upcoming London Short Film Festival, which takes place from 11 – 20 January at independent cinemas and venues across London.
London Film School has something of a reputation for developing talent and filmmakers’ creative voices. Often the most formative and remunerative work directors do, particularly early on in their careers, is commercials. One of LFS’s graduates who has been carving out a name for himself as a commercial director, is TJ O’Grady Peyton, graduated from LFS’ MA Filmmaking in 2010.
Many congratulations to MA Screenwriting grad Lawrie Doran for being one of 12 John Brabourne recipients!
