Date: 24 February 2016

Students from London Met’s student led in-house production company WEMAKEFILM screened their short film MISPLACED at London’s BFI Future Film Festival.

MISPLACED, written and directed by BA Film and Broadcast Production student Jonathan Bowers, was screened on 19 February as part of the Oh So Surreal section of the festival, showcasing a selection of shorts that take a peek into the world of the surreal.

The micro short, about a man and his lost phone stars Lambert Grand, with cinematography by Andrea Saini and edited by Antonio Sequeria of Violent Crowd Films.

The BFI Future Film Festival showcases some of the best new talent in filmmaking from the UK and overseas. Running from the 17-21 February 2016 the ninth annual Future Film Festival showcased fiction, documentary and animation shorts from filmmakers aged from 16-25.

Attendees were also able to take part in workshops and talks, networking sessions and award ceremonies as part of the event.

Inclusion at this international film festival is another great example of success from our Cass film students. Recent alumni successes include Chris Chung who created TV Pilot Wok; Destiny Ekaragha who saw her feature film Gone Too Far distributed across the UK; and filmmaker and London Met hero Jesse Quinones whose film Calloused Hands has won an array of awards including Best Feature Film at the Fingal Film Festival (2014); the Hearts Mind and Soul Award at the Rhode Island International Film Festival (2013); and Best Film and Best Director at the 2015 British Urban Film Festival.
