Bursaries for 2 Moroccan Filmmakers at the London Film School
As part of the Transnational Moroccan Cinema Project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK), we are delighted to offer two fully-funded bursaries for two exceptional, emerging Moroccan filmmakers to spend a term in residency at the London Film School (LFS). The bursaries will cover all costs for travel (to and from UK and Morocco), accommodation and living expenses while in London as well as all LFS fees.
The successful candidates will attend the LFS from 11th January 2017- 1st April 2017. During their time at the LFS, they will:
- participate in collaborative projects with staff and students at the film school, which may include working on the completion of a short film in a team
- be able to attend workshops and master classes with industry professionals visiting the school and all other events offered by the LFS to its students;
- be invited to attend and participate in classes and symposia related to the prestigious Exeter/LFS MA in International Film Business (including classes on development and pre-production, creative management, digital disruption, film finance).
The time spent at the LFS represents a unique and exceptional opportunity for two young Moroccan filmmakers to develop their craft as filmmakers and expand their network of contacts in the international film industry.
The successful candidates were Mahassine El Hachadi and Saïda Janjague. They arrived in London in January and stayed until early April. They both made the most of their stay, and will provide updates on their adventures at LFS and in London soon, on our blog.
