Forms have been emailed to all NAHEMI members asking you to register for this year’s NAHEMI Eat Our Shorts Festival which takes place on 8th July 2013 in NFT3.

“The Casting Handbook” has been published by Routledge. Written by the Northern Film School’s Jennifer Granville, with casting director Suzy Catliff, the book explains the casting process from beginning to end and covers everything that training and early stage producers and directors need to know. It includes interviews with actors, agents, directors, casting directors and producers; case studies; exercises and a fact file of useful templates and contacts. This is a vital – but often overlooked area of the production process – link for library purchases below.

After a well-attended and thought-provoking screening of outstanding student films at Encounters Festival, the Cinematography Award was presented to NFTS Graduate Lukasc Konopa for ‘After’- In an observation from dusk till dawn, the film portrays the theatre of everyday life around Auschwitz. The director’s camera observes closely but unobtrusively what goes on within and outside the camp. Each situation is a carefully composed world of silence and solitude that resonates with unspoken words and feelings.
The Prize for Creative Filmmaking was awarded to NUCA Animation graduate Alex Searle for his film ‘What is Animation?’ – A comical character-driven animation featuring cameo performances of a series of voxpop interpretations.
Both awards were presented by NFTS Director Nik Powell, and both of the winners have been given the opportunity to attend some valuable short courses at The London Film School and the NFTS.
Once again, NAHEMI will be showing some of the best work selected from UK film schools in the past year at the Encounters Short Film & Animation Festival in Bristol.
This year’s selection will feature work from students from the National School of Film and Television, Norwich University College of the Arts, the University of the West of England, the Northern Film School, Farnham Film School, the University of Gloucestershire, and the Royal College of Art.
There will be awards presented on the night by Nik Powell, head of the National Film and Televsion School, for Creative Filmmaking and for best Cinematography, with prizes generously sponsored by the National Film and Televsion School and the London Film School.
This event has been a sell out for the past three years, so early booking is strongly recommended !!
