London Short Film Festival Industry SessionsFILM...FAMILY LIFE...FINE! MAKING IT POSSIBLE WITH RAISING FILMS
12:00 Hackney Attic
We know that filmmaking is hard (but brilliant). We know that family life is hard (but brilliant). And we know that there are parents and carers doing – and wanting to do – both, because they’ve told us at Raising Films. We’ll be talking about the challenges (including moving from shorts to features), the practical solutions, the emotional journeys and the exciting and inclusive on-screen stories that result when parents and carers are supported to make films. This event is open to babies and children, with their parents and carers being responsible for their safety in the room.

Helping to bring together different people, worlds and stories to create a very strong link between countries, this cross border collaboration has resulted in filmmaking that is truly global in its outlook. In light of recent political events throughout the world, programmers from international short film festivals, discuss how international collaboration has impacted their latest programmes.
