At the beginning of March, our lecturer Elhum arranged a trip to the BFI Mediatheque and a talk from Philip Ilson, the Creative Director of London Short Film Festival and the shorts programmer for London Film Festival. I’ve previously been to the Mediatheque, and used their archive whilst writing an essay in 2nd year about Joss Whedon’s works. There is a wide variety of source material available and is a wonderful resource for media students. Plus, it’s free and that’s always good.
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend. Though, I wish I did, as the talk Q&A thing from Philip Ilson would have been amazing and nice to pick his brain.
