We’re excited to announce that the short films created through our women’s filmmaking programme will be screened later this month, as part of a special event with Bristol Film Festival. Join us on 29th June for a showcase of female filmmaking talent!
Between January and May 2017, 14 women aged 18+ took part in the From Her POV programme, receiving weekly training and support to develop their professional skills and create two short films. They heard from visiting speakers, had opportunities to network and meet others working in film and TV, and received training in scriptwriting, camera and lighting, sound recording, working with actors, 2D animation, production design, and puppetry.
Their short films Blood Warriors and Black Cherry are now in post-production and will be screened on Thursday 29th June at Arnolfini, followed by the award-winning feature film Mustang. The From Her POV team will also take part in a Q&A session to share their filmmaking journey and answer questions from the audience.
Kam Gandhi, director of Black Cherry and From Her POV participant, commented: ‘The POV experience has been amazing. Who would have thought: before applying for the scheme I was thinking of giving up on filmmaking and now I feel the exact opposite – I’m certain this is what I want to do!’
You can find out more about the screenings and buy tickets via the Bristol Film Festival website.
This programme is supported by Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund, with BFI’s Film Forever National Lottery funds.
