"The first professional trip out of Bristol since March last year was to London to catch up on films. I have been eager to re-engage with festivals; so decided London Film Festival would be my first tentative re-emerging steps."
Films, stories and music from more than a dozen countries and the premiere of its own first self-made film will be on offer when Afrika Eye - the South West’s biggest festival of African cinema and culture – returns to venues across Bristol and beyond from November 8th to 16th.
"We participated in workshops on film curation, budgeting, marketing, fundraising, and we started to think about how to adapt all these new ideas to our own practice and - best of all - how we could do this together!"
We are excited to announce that BFI NETWORK Short Film Funding has reopened for applications for filmmakers and animators based in the South West of England!
BFI NETWORK South West are hosting a number of industry events with the team at Encounters, inviting animators in the region to learn and network alongside peers and professionals.
Visitors to Plymouth Arts Cinema’s Open Air Cinema events at Tinside Lido will be treated to a programme of short films to accompany the main features.
