NAHEMI “Establishing the Filmmaker” @ Aesthetica Film Festival 2017

November 27, 2017

NAHEMI ‘Establishing the Filmmaker’ Screening and Q&A was held on Friday 15th November at the Aesthetica Film Festival York.

A range of films including narrative, experimental, documentary and animation were screened having been selected by a panel from the Executive Board. We had an extensive number of high quality submissions from our member Institutions.

Freya Billington, Programme Leader from UWE_FILM then hosted a Q&A with 8 of the filmmakers whose work had been screened, asking them about their experience studying filmmaking and discussing their future plans. Audience feedback was extremely positive and the NAHEMI presence most definitely felt.

Several filmmakers have had people contact them directly about including their films in other festivals as a result of seeing them in the programme.

One student commented:

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to NAHEMI for everything. Being able to go to Encounters and Aesthetica has been such an experience. I have loved every second of it. Seen hundreds of films, spoken to so many people. I have had an absolute blast, picked up some work and my head is buzzing with ideas for future projects.”
