As part of a culturally rich programme, prominent industry leaders from influential organisations are in attendance, such as Aardman Studios, Film4 and British Vogue, as well as actor and screenwriter Alice Lowe (Hot Fuzz, Sightseers, Prevenge) and BAFTA-winning Editor Mick Audsley (Murder on the Orient Express, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire).Producing a range of creative and informative industry masterclasses, this year’s speakers cover topics such as: The Role of the Camera Operator, The World of Animation, Creating an Inclusive Industry, and Finding Success at Festivals.
New for 2018, ASFF also expands its selection to longer-form stories, screening Narrative and Documentary Feature films. Inspired by alumni who have gone on to achieve further success, such as BAFTA-nominee Francis Lee (God’s Own Country), the festival provides an opportunity to see the next generation of talent.
