Film London announces the launch of a Microschool International for film-makers in the country. With funding from the British Council, this pilot programme is presented in partnership with the Georgia National Film Center (GNFC) and Batumi International Art-house Film Festival (BIAFF).
An intensive three day development workshop for film-making teams and their projects, Microschool International is based on Film London Microwave’s Microschool, the training ‘boot camp’ for those shortlisted for the award-winning scheme. Microschool, made up of seminars, master-classes and one-to-one sessions, focuses on micro-budget topics alongside specific project development.
Film-makers who have benefitted from Microschool include Eran Creevy who wrote and directed the BAFTA-nominated Microwave film Shifty and more recently the Ridley Scott executive produced Welcome to the Punch and writer/director Ben Drew, who made his feature debut with the Microwave film iLL Manors.
