Digital Film Festival in Hastings

The University of Brighton’s Hastings campus is holding its annual Digital Film Festival on 30 May of May from 5pm at the Kino Teatr cinema and music venue in St. Leonards.

This year’s event is the biggest yet with 19 projects from Digital Film, TV and Digital Media Production and Illustration for Screen Art on show.

Dr Dario Llinares, Principal Lecturer in Contemporary Screen Media, said: “The range of genres, styles and themes across the programme reflect the eclectic, in-depth and relevant interests of the students with projects ranging from genre filmmaking in horror, comedy and tragedy; drama productions that deal with themes of identity, student life and grief; off-beat and experimental entries showing incredible creativity; and documentary work which tackles prescient political and social issues.

“The focus of the night will be the superb work of creative industries students and staff who exemplify the dedication and passion for Digital Media Filmmaking at the University of Brighton.”

The festival will also feature a visit from filmmaker Alice Lowe who will screen her critically-acclaimed comedy-horror Prevenge and discuss the film with Dr Llinares for his Cinematologists Podcast.
