We The Peoples Film Festival is coming to LIBRARY

LIBRARY is pleased to be a part of The We The Peoples Film Festival in its 11th season.

LIBRARY Festival programme will feature:

Selling Isobel, a disturbing film of an ordinary mother with an ordinary job who is lured a commercial photo shoot, one that will change her life forever.

 Fish and Crops which demonstrates that in farming and fishing, everything is changing so fast, these professions are being strongly affected by climate changes, technology and also modern farming practices.

 

The 11th We The Peoples Film Festival will screen 40 films in 14 venues from 7 to 21 November. The films will tackle subjects linked to the United Nations’ Three Pillars of Freedom; freedom from want, freedom from fear and the freedom to live in dignity. Awards for Best Films in Festival will cover the associated issues of development, security and human rights. Awards will also be made for films on environment issues and an audience award for short films.  

 The festival’s flagship event, the Young Film Makers Day at the BFI Southbank, on Sunday 13 November will offer master classes in film-making and host the annual #TweetAPitch competition for a £500 bursary towards creating a short film to be premiered at the Young Film-Makers Day in 2017. Last year’s winners, Cecelia Golding and Nick Finegan, will premiere their film The Swimming Pool Club during the event. The respected film director Don Boyd will lead discussion on film-making and join the judging panel for the #TweetAPitch competition. The event will conclude with the announcement of the Best Films in Festival awards.

 

“We are delighted that we will be partnering with LIBRARY this year” said David Wardrop, festival director. “Our festival is unique in the UK for its focus on these UN-related issues and, like all festivals, depends on volunteers in every aspect of our work. Once again, students in Event Management at the Ashdown Academy are curating all screening, gaining first-hand organising experience. They are the foundation of our festival.” 

 The We The Peoples Film Festival is a project of the United Nations Association Westminster Branch.

Screening of two Festival films  Selling Isobel and Fish and  Crops  will take place in LIBRARY on 17th of November with start at 19h.
