From Shorts to Features Conference: Foyle Film Festival, November 19th
2016-11-11 9:45:00 : Katie McNeice
'In View' from Irish Director Ciaran Creagh
The one-day programme in the Nerve Centre, which will see BAFTA-winning filmmakers John Maclean (Slow West) and Tony Cranstoun in attendance, caters to filmmakers transitioning from short to feature length projects.

Panels, case studies and screenings will be held throughout, with Maclean taking part in a panel discussion with agent and producer Conor McCaughan.

The ‘Slow West’ director debuted with his short film ‘Man on a Motorcycle’ in 2009, shot entirely on a mobile phone. His consecutive short film ‘Pitch Black Heist’ went on to earn him a BAFTA for Best British Short.

Jonathan Blagrove from Coda Films will follow the panel and chart his early career as a producer on TV and film, to making his directorial debut with ‘The Final Reel’, which he is also self-distributing.

Irish title ‘In View’ from Ciaran Creagh will be presented as an afternoon case study, with Creagh, producers David Byrne and Simon Doyle, actor Ciaran McMenamin (Made In Belfast) and editor Tony Cranstoun (I Give It A Year) taking part.

Both ‘In View’ and ‘The Final Reel’ will be screened for guests on the day.

Bernie McLaughlin, Foyle Film Festival director:
“As Northern Ireland’s only Oscar-affiliated film festival we’re delighted to welcome such fantastic industry guests to Derry to help filmmakers bridge that daunting gap between short and features. There will also be opportunities for attendees to make contacts and network, ensuring they get the most out of the day.”
