Eat Our Shorts...
presents two days of the most dynamic, gritty, classy and quirky films made this year. The non-competitive festival comprises films and videos made by students and recent graduates from some of the leading film schools and media departments in the UK and Ireland.
Each year, Eat Our Shorts celebrates new talent by bringing together student filmmakers from all over the UK and Ireland to see each other's work and share creative experiences.
At the same time, the EOS film festival celebrates the international community of film schools represented by CILECT. A delegation of graduates from UNATC the National University for Theatre and Film Arts in Bucharest has been invited to represent the emergence of a young new wave in Romanian cinema.
As a long-standing EOS tradition, all filmmakers will discuss their films with the audience immediately after the screenings. Chaired by leading film, television and animation practitioners, these debates provide a unique opportunity for current students to learn from the experiences of other young film makers, recent film school graduates and many industry film makers of international standing who are EOS mentors.
NAHEMI is delighted to offer members the opportunity to screen their own selection of student films and videos at BFI Southbank in the NFT Cinema 1 auditorium. You decide what to include in any or all three categories: animation, drama or documentary. As far as possible, we will screen the best programme to represent your school, department and/or course.
