Previews is a new Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival (BFMAF) programme strand highlighting forthcoming feature-length films. For its first edition BFMAF has invited artist filmmakers Tim Leyendekker (NL) and Fern Silva (US) to introduce their debut—work in progress—feature films. They’ll join a live streamed conversation and share film excerpts, detailing their journey along the path of production.
The Festival’s aim is to initiate an additional forum for artists and filmmakers to connect with industry professionals who share BFMAF’s interest in challenging, complex and risk-taking new cinema. In addition to the public programme, Fern and Tim’s forthcoming films will be made available to invited festival programmers, distributors and sales agents for a time limited preview.
Guided by the principles through which the Festival curates its wider programme, it expects these forthcoming films to generate strong resonances with audiences and exhibitors alike.
Live Event — 10 October 2020, 15:00
New to the Festival this year, Previews highlights forthcoming feature-length films and offers audiences a chance to hear about the process of their production. For the inaugural event, filmmakers Tim Leyendekker and Fern Silva will each share a taster of their yet to be premiered feature length works and discuss their process with BFMAF programmers Ana David and Herb Shellenberger.→
