Plymouth College of Art film department has been developing a relationship with Raindance Film Training and as a result students from the Film Arts Degree programme will showcase their work at the international film festival, Raindance, on October 2 at the Apollo Theatre, London.
They’ll join other South West respentation at the film festival in the form of The Screaming Skull, from Exeter Animator Ashley Thorpe.
Dan Paolantonio, Film Arts Programme Leader at Plymouth College of Art told D+CFilm: “The eclectic programme of short films will feature everything from edgy dramas, to campaigning documentaries, music video, experimentia and just about everything in-between.”
Produced by students from across all three years of the BA (Hons) and Foundation Degree Film Arts programme of study, these films were variously created in response to curricular challenges -from films produced in collaboration with Raindance writing students and artists from the CafÃ© Concrete Sonic Arts Collective, to those inspired by Lars Von Trier’s Five Obstructions, and those shot on location in New York City in a single day, to those produced within the academic deadlines.
The partnership with Raindance has already led to Eliot Grove, the founder of the Raindance Film Festival being awared an honorary doctorate of which the Open Univeristy has conferred at Plymouth College of Art’s recent graduation and will pave the way for the launch of a truly groundbreaking collaborative venture; a Foundation Degree in Independent Film-Making for due for launch at Plymouth College of Art in September 2010, subject to validation.
