The BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival (ASFF) 2016 returns this year from 3 to 6 November in York, screening over 300 films in its Official Selection alongside a programme of exciting industry events. Screening Passes are now available, as are events tickets for industry activities such as masterclasses, networking sessions and special events.
There will be 29 masterclasses with leading figures in the film world, networking sessions with major film organisations and Showcase Screenings presenting the works of emerging and innovative practitioners. Masterclass speakers include Editor Celia Haining (Misfits, Peaky Blinders, Nightshift and feature films Desert Dancer and Slumdog Millionaire); acclaimed Director of Photography, Chloë Thomson (Damascus Cover, I Do and Nick Cave’s 20,000 Days on Earth), and Film Critic Simran Hans (The Guardian, Sight & Sound, Little White Lies).
Organisations also leading masterclasses are BBC, Channel 4, Light & Industrial Magic, BAFTA winning animators The Brothers McLeod, Blinkink (Harvey Nichols, Channel 4, O2, John Lewis’s The Bear and the Hare) among others.
There will also be the popular Meet the Film Festivals event, where filmmakers can network with programmers from leading UK and international film festivals and find out exactly what they are looking for. Meet the Filmmakers, sponsored by Creative England, also returns, creating a place for audiences to connect with those whose films are in the Official Selection.
Screening Passes range from Single Screening Tickets to One Day and Unlimited Four Day Passes, enabling the festival-goer unlimited access to all film screenings across the four-day event. Screening Passes also permit access to the ASFF 2016 Showcase Screenings, which are an opportunity for pass-holders to see works curated by organisations such as Creative England, Northern Film School, London College of Fashion and many more.
Tickets for Masterclasses, Special Events and Networking Sessions are now available. These help filmmakers and film enthusiasts to explore today’s key issues, develop their career, enhance their skills and tune into current opportunities for practitioners working at any level.
