First Light at the Future Film Festival

Future Film Festival

The 6th BFI Future Film Festival returns with an exciting line-up of events and screenings, to help you develop your own unique pathway into the world of film.

Each day will have a different focus (fiction, animation and documentary) and there’s loads of really interesting masterclasses, hands on workshops and screenings of the best new films by young, emerging filmmakers and inspirational Q&As.

Come along…

First Light will be hosting 2 events at the Festival:

Bricking It – Sunday 17th Feb at 12noon – LS1

Join us as we take a look at the popularity of Lego animation films on YouTube. Why are they so popular? What makes grown adults spend hours upon hours creating animations with toy bricks? We’ll also give you the chance to create your own short lego film.

‘We Are Poets’ Screening and Q&A – Monday 18th Feb 12noon – NFT2

This low budget British documentary is currently storming the film world, picking up prestigious awards all over. Alex Ramseyer Bache, co-directed We Are Poets developed his love of films working on First Light projects. We’ll be screening his film and he’ll be there in person to answer your questions

So, whether you are looking for a kick-start to your film career or you just want to try your hand at something new, the Festival is bound to have something of interest.

Tickets start at just £5 for a day pass and you can book tickets via the BFI site.
