We all ate it. Yep, thats right, Birds Eye View was invited to host a Howling Feedback networking event at very cool London Short Film Festival, so yesterday afternoon saw the congregation of filmmakers, filmlovers, film industry and… cake.
The Curzon bar was packed out with an attentative crowd, including Paul Green (Talent Scout for Skillset and NFTS), Liz Harkman (Managing Director of Encounters Film Festival), Philip Ilsen himself (co-director of LSFF), and of course our very own Rachel Millward (BEV Festival Director and host of the event), all ready to watch short films and ask questions to some talented women filmmakers:
Eva Weber (Solitary Life of Cranes),
Susanna Wallin (Eddie Proctor)
Marinella Seti (Chasmogamy)
All of the filmmakers had shown work at previous Birds Eye View film festivals, and we were delighted to hear that Chasmogamy was actually the result of a private funding offer made after the funder saw another one of Marinella’s short films at a Birds Eye View film festival. How dreamy is that?!
This event was particularly exciting for me, as it gave BEV a chance to test our new Facebook page that I created last week (and of course a good excuse to brush up on my cake-baking skills) and I was overwhelmed with joy to see how many of you responded to our facebook invite. If you have a Facebook account, but you haven’t already become a fan then please visit our page and show your support!
London Short Film Festival continues until Sunday 18th January in venues across London.
