The Greenhorn Short Film Festival was founded artist, Flora Bradwell and filmmaker, Alix Taylor, who wanted to acknowledge the achievements of emerging talent by those who put an unusual slant on short films. Now in its fourth year, the festival now not only includes screenings and prize givings, but also Q&A sessions, panel discussions, hands on workshops, and script appraisals. Also returning is The Ideas Tap Young Greenhorn Film Award for filmmakers aged 16-25.
The festival runs from the 16th - 18th November at ArtHouse Crouch End, and events range from £5 - £10. Highlights include the Animation Freakatorium, which showcases stop motion, CGI, and puppetry from Flabbergast Theatre. There will be Lite Lunch Lunch Shorts which you can enjoy with an artisan sandwich, and a panel discussion focussing on Music in Film. It will cover topics such as how to acquire music for your films, how to develop collaborations with composers, online networks and PRS companies, how composers can promote themselves, develop relationship with directors, and how to work in various different fields.
For those who love to reenact their favourite film scenes, the Crafternoon CabaretClub is a must. During the workshop you will get to make character finger puppets, while enjoying film themed cabaret from Twins Macabre.
