Future Artists’ Film and Media Festival is a collaborative project, bringing together a selection of both emerging and established entrepreneurs in the industry. Its aim is to explore how the next generation of media creators are breaking new ground in digital storytelling and to celebrate the rise of underground DIY culture through film and media from those who are pushing the boundaries.
There will be two days of workshops, screenings and panels, giving people the knowledge and confidence to become successful, independent film makers. The regional premieres of Last Shop Standing, Press Pause Play and also Call Me Kuchu will all take place during the festival. Plus there will be a special screeing of Tiny Furniture, produced and directed by Lena Dunham ~ the creator and star of the HBO series Girls (nominated for 4 Emmy Awards in 2012).
Future Artists’ Film & Media festival has been curated by Mark Ashmore, who has been making and producing films for 10 years. Mark is the co- founder of Future Artists ~ a new wave film studio which focuses on DIY culture and the power of networked communities.
