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.
The tiny village of Schull (population 658), home to Fastnet Film Festival, one of Ireland’s most innovative and idiosyncratic short film festivals, will welcome a host of LFS students, staff and alumni next week as they take part in both the festival competition and its London Film School Showcase.
This year’s Cannes Film Festival launched amid a storm of protest and controversy this year. In the midst of a tumultuous festival, London Film School’s own alumni have also made their mark.
