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.
Designed to connect LFS to its surrounding community and celebrate our extensive alumni and partnership achievements, our CONNECTS series focuses on different aspects of filmmaking through a diverse range of exclusive screenings, industry-led panels, guest Q&As and Masterclasses.
We’re delighted to announce the next set of connects events:
23 May – 18:30 to 21:00 Screening of Killed by My Debt and Q&A with Head of Production Design Matt Button
Head of Production Design at LFS, Matt Button will screen his latest BAFTA-nominated docudrama, Killed by My Debt.

4 June – 18:30 to 21:30 Screening of Halfway and Q&A with alumni Ben Caird and Benjamin Thomas
MA Filmmaking alumnus Ben Caird returns to LFS for a screening of his BIFA-nominated film Halfway. A recently released convict (Quinton Aaron, The Blind Side) adjusts to his new life on probation as the only black man in a conservative Wisconsin farming town. Among prisoners released in 30 American states in 2005, roughly 68% were rearrested within 3 years and over 75% rearrested within 5 years. Halfway brings to light this serious systematic failure within the American prison system, where a lack of opportunity for those who have transgressed in their past seems to guarantee a future behind bars. Following the film, join Ben and cinematographer and fellow alumnus Benjamin Thomas for a film analysis Q&A. Click here to RSVP.
