There’s a call for short films by female directors from Exeter, Devon and Cornwall for a special pop up event at Exeter University.
The pop up is being organised by a group of studying for an MA in International Business Studies.
Haidi Leung explained the thinking behind the event.
“Our group consists of five females from across the globe so straight away we knew we wanted to do something focusing on female achievements,” she said. “Female influences and involvement in the film industry is also a very topical subject.”
The project will be made up of a one hour screening for all the shorts and 30 minutes for discussion.
There are plans to have a live Q&A session as part of the post screening discussion.
Films can be submitted directly to Haidi (email@example.com) or Madeleine (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can also get in touch with any questions or to discuss involvement opportunities.
The group would also like to engage local businesses -donations from local bakeries/food outlets for the event, or sponsorship or printing costs are areas they are currently exploring. Or even a loan of items -perhaps made by local female artists -for display during the event. They would, of course, big up everyone involved. Get in touch with Haidi or Madeleine.
