BFI Future Film: DIY Thriller Filmmaking Fortnight

Description :

Start your summer with a crash course in DIY filmmaking at BFI Southbank in London.
Inspired by the BFI’s Hitchcock season, BFI Future Film is bringing you another chance to make amazing short films at their DIY Film Fortnight – and this year they’re making thrillers. This practical fortnight includes masterclasses and workshops to help you understand and create short thriller films on a micro-budget. They’ll cover everything from planning and production to editing and SFX. At the end of the course the final films will be shown on the big screen in front of industry professionals and invited guests. 

From the 17th - 31st August I will be attending this event. This is all the information I can find about it and none of the BFI staff know any more than this. With the suspense of not knowing what to expect I'm very excited to be able to take part and shall blog the days events as they take place. 


  1. Sounds reallllly good..Southbank is only down the road from me aswell :D

  2. Sounds bloody fantastic, Nat - so I await your updates with interest!

    Meanwhile, look - I've got 3 new first years in need of some mentoring. I may send a couple more your way, but these are the first out of the blocks, so go say 'Hi' and be a force for good :)
