Back to 2012


British Council Film at Encounters

Hidden Place by Stephen Irwin - commissioned by Lupus Films for Channel 4's Random Acts

British Council Film is very pleased to be supporting this year’s Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival in Bristol, 18 – 23 September 2012 – one of the most important dates in the international short and animation film calendar.

BC Film Advisers Will Massa and Gary Thomas will both be heading to Bristol to take part in the Funding and Opportunities Panel, and chair the just-added session Go International, taking a look at the potential of financial and creative international collaborations and showcasing opportunities. Will also joins the jury for DepicT! – Watershed’s super short film competition, which runs with support from British Council Film.

Also in Bristol we’re pleased to be supporting Serbian filmmaker Jelena Gavrilović - winner of our special BC Short Film Award at the 2012 Sarajevo Film Festival - to attend the festival. And British Council Indonesia is supporting a trip by the directors of Jakarta’s HelloFest to enable them to develop partnerships with Encounters.

Finally we'll be letting our hair down at Bar Shorts Go Random with a screening of a selection of Channel 4’s Animated Random Acts (in association with Lupus Films), live music, DJ, and more.
