London Short Film Festival: Down on the Farm (a short film getaway)

Did you enjoy the London Short Film Festival back in January? 

Rather than wait a full year for the next one, you can join us in the summer sun (yes, it’s gonna be a hot one, so we’ve been told!) in the English countryside for a boutique short film ‘mini-break’ from Friday 31st May - Sunday 2nd June 2013. Join a host of 70 participants alongside filmmakers, industry partners and live entertainment for a weekend of film, discussion and networking, all in the beautiful idyllic surroundings of the Darent Valley.

Taking place at the Quadrangle Trust, just outside Shoreham in Kent, which is a short, inexpensive train ride from London, but feeling a million miles away! The Victorian farmstead buildings, including a majestic timber roofed hay barn for the sessions, are surrounded by peaceful countryside and beautiful gardens. Accommodation is camping, or there are local hotels and B&Bs.

Confirmed for sessions:

  • Andrew Kotting (This Filthy Earth / Swandown)
  • Dexter Fletcher (Wild Bill)
  • Gillies MacKinnon (Hideous Kinky / Small Faces)
  • Roger Hyams (script editor – Kelly + Victor, Amber Films)
  • Julia Jones (JJPR and Deliverance – The Look of Love, Third Person)
  • Caroline Hewitt (Producer - The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Bright Young Things)
  • Encounters Short Film Festival
  • Shooting People
  • London Film School

  • Happy hours, incl. Shooters in the Barn
  • Inspired by the Quadrangle Documentary Film Festival (taking place for the third time at the same location, 6 – 8 September), and the Binger Film Lab in Amsterdam, as well as drawing on LSFF Director Philip Ilson’s work with the rural aspects of the Branchage Film Festival in Jersey using alternative sites to create new film experiences.
