BFI Documentary Residential 2015
The BFI Film Academy Documentary Residential offered a fantastic opportunity for 40 young individuals (16-19) from across the UK to learn the practice of Documentary production. By the end of the residential they each had a five to ten minute film to their name. On top of this there were a variety of Masterclasses from industry professionals including the Oscar winning producer of Searching for Sugarman, Simon Chinn, and editor of the critically acclaimed documentary The Imposter, Andrew Hulme, as well as many others. Throughout the week the young people learned filmmaking skills, worked in teams to produce short films, attended masterclasses and went on film themed trips. The residential was a huge success culminating in a cinema screening of all their hard-work at Richmix Cinema in London.
