Dear NAHEMI friends,
Building on last year’s success, this year’s conference and showcase will be held at the BFI Southbank centre with the Talking Shop conference in the mornings and Eat Our Shorts, the students’ showcase films, in the afternoons.
Please note the dates are Monday and Tuesday 4th and 5th July in NFT3. The AGM will be held at the University of Westminster Regent Street building on Wednesday 6th July.
The conference provides a unique opportunity for members to report on and debate current initiatives in the teaching of practice. As you may remember, last year’s themes were on Teaching Creativity, New Approaches to Documentary, Assessments and Questions of Employability. We are open to topics that come from you and might for instance include – the best kept secrets of teaching, exercises that didn’t work, the creative possibilities of belt tightening and teaching film in a global culture. From your topics we will fashion congruent themes for four different panels at the conference.
The deadline for proposals (titles and abstracts of 200 words) is the 8th April.
Eat Our Shorts
Eat Our Shorts presents a non-competitive showcase of your students’ recent films selected by you. We invite you to encourage (coerce?) your filmmakers to come to the showcase which will include the Kodak Audience Award.
The deadline for registrations (but not the programme details) is the 8th April.
The cost of participation in either or both events is £150. Please note, we will send annual invoices (£150 membership + £150 conference and showcase registration) immediately after the 8th April.
Please check the small print in the attached guidelines and programme outline.
With best wishes and looking forward to seeing you all in July
Chair of Nahemi
