>>> LONDON FILM SCHOOL

Retrospective, presentation of the latest achievements

The London Film School does not need to be presented. It is a place where diamonds of the world cinema – eccentric, erudite and controversial – are polished. CINEMAFORUM will present five of the most interesting short films by students of one of the best film schools according to the prestigious “The Hollywood Reporter.”

After the screening of five short films, a meeting will be held with Zhannata Alshanova, the director of the film “End of Season”, and Wojciech Wrześniewski, Head of Sound Department LFS. The event takes place in cooperation with the British Council Poland as part of the “Creativity Talks” series of meetings

London Film School (LFS) is internationally celebrated for its commitment to film, craft excellence, innovation and creative freedom. Currently located in Covent Garden LFS is the first film school in the UK. Deeply connected to local and international screen industries, they have alumni spanning the globe, and working in every part of the film industry. Their students and alumni have won every major award in the screen industries, and they continue to foster and nurture the next generation of
filmmakers.
