Future Film Animation+ Awards

Join us for our annual Future Film Festival Animation+ Awards  screening where we’ll be showing the top six short Animation+ films submitted to the festival this year as selected by The Future Film Institute (our panel of young programmers). All the films will receive feedback from our panel of industry experts and one film in each age category (15-18 and 19-25) will receive a BFI Future Film Award. This is your chance to check out tomorrow’s talent of Future Filmmakers.

Raw Shorts: The Expendables?

This month Raw Shorts looks at the team you need to get your film  rolling. A panel discussion with professionals and experts from across the production industry will discuss what qualities are essential when putting a team together, and what equipment you need for that crew to handle.

This will be followed by a choice of either: a masterclass in casting from the perspectives of a casting director, a producer and a director; or, if you can’t tell a fish-eye lens from a telescopic, then join our practical workshop on filmmaking kit, including cameras, lenses, sound recording devices, plus equipment you can make yourself for next to nothing (DIY steadicams, tracks and dollies).

At the end of the day there’ll be a chance to network with other young filmmakers and industry professionals.
