Dear List members,

I am writing to let you know about the LJMU MA Short Film Festival (https://ljmumashortfilmfestival.org/) that I run as part of the new MA Film at LJMU and that will go live 16-23rd April. The festival is part of the module ‘Exploring Film Festivals, Distribution and Exhibition’ so students are involved in most stages. The MA Film combines theory and practice, and in this module the practice consists of putting together the festival.

The festival has three strands: Documentary/Fiction/Animation. It would be great if you joined the festival and also spread the word! The films are not geo-blocked, so it is accessible from everywhere, it is free and no registration is needed (although you can optionally subscribe for updates).  Viewers can also vote for the Audience Award. There will also be three Jury “Paper Bird” awards, one per strand:https://ljmumashortfilmfestival.org/paper-bird-award-and-jury/

Organising this online short film festival with (and for) students has been quite an experience (and a lot of work!), but also rewarding and very interesting. Lars Koens has been working with me on this, and also leading on the creative and the technical side (https://ljmumashortfilmfestival.org/people/).

You can also follow/share/like us on social media:

I look forward to ‘e-see’ you in the festival from this Friday!

All best
