WELCOME TO NORWICH FILM FESTIVAL 2018

WE’RE BACK AND READY to screen the best independent films, bring you iconic guests, and invite you to hear from talented filmmakers. We’re continuing our history of showing fantastic short films by narrowing down a record 761 submissions to this year’s Official Selection for you to enjoy. 2018 means more independent features for you to see; the debut of workshops for aspiring and emerging filmmakers to take part in; and a new awards celebration to announce our category winners. We’re extremely grateful for the continued generous support of our sponsors, partners and festival friends; alongside the ongoing commitment from our team of volunteers and the staff at the venues hosting us across the city. The festival wouldn’t be possible without them and it certainly wouldn’t be possible without you. By attending you’re not only helping to support independent film, but the filmmakers themselves; and most importantly our creative community in East Anglia. We look forward to welcoming you this November. Best wishes, Norwich Film Festival

Power in Our Hands Venue: The John Hurt Centre Power in Our Hands is a ground-breaking documentary on the Deaf community’s fight for civil rights, and principally the right to be heard.

Pin Cushion (plus Q&A) Venue: The Garage A dark fairytale set in Derbyshire, Pin Cushion tells the story of Lyn (Joanna Scanlan) and Iona (newcomer Lily Newmark), an equally oddball mother and daughter duo who arrive in a small town to start their lives afresh. The pair have an extraordinarily close relationship, living in a house that they decorate like a kingdom of their own, with cut-outs of kittens and cupcakes adorning their walls and a pet budgie that they treat like a family member. Although Lyn and Iona are excited to be in a new place, and determined to make the best of it, the harsh realities of high school and adolescence soon start tearing them apart. We’re pleased to welcome writerdirector, Deborah Haywood to discuss her debut feature in a Q&A straight after the screening. 15 | 82 mins | 2018 17:15 – 19:15 Tickets: General Admission £6 Under 25’s – £5 “An amazing feature debut…” Shelagh Rowan-Legg, Screen Anarchy “Joanna Scanlan gives an outstanding – and terrifying – performance in a superb British indie” Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian – 4 Stars).

The Choudray family represents a truly contemporary example of modern multicultural Britain – but what will the brothers make of their eccentric newfound family? Will they be going to Mecca or Mecca bingo?

VFX Masterclass with David Simpson

Women In Film: Directors

Venue: Norwich University of the Arts

In May 2016, Directors UK published Cut Out of the Picture – a study into gender inequality among directors within the UK film industry. It found that despite women making up 49.4% of new entrants in the film industry, only 21.7% of publicly funded films studied were directed by women.

A Sci-Fine City: Come and try out some industry tools for creating believable VFX. Join NUA’s VFX guru David Simpson for a short hands-on session using Nuke and Maya software – the tools the VFX industry uses to create the special effects you’ve seen in Blade Runner 2049 or Star Wars: The Last Jedi. You’ll get to build a shot for a mysterious sci-fi film set in Norwich. Open to anyone who has ever used Photoshop or similar design programs. No need to be familiar with VFX software before. Tickets are limited so please book in advance. 16:30 – 18:00 Tickets: FREE

Venue: The Forum

So for a second year running, we’ve decided to dedicate a screening to celebrating female filmmakers in our official selection and help promote gender equality in the film industry. Of course, we’ll also be showing a lot more films by female filmmakers throughout this year’s festival. We are hoping to welcome directors, Lesley Manning and Stephanie Zari for a Q&A following this screening. 19:30 – 21:30 | 18 | 96 mins Tickets: General Admission £5 | Under 25’s – £4

Is Visual Effects Killing Cinema? Venue: Norwich University of the Arts 49 out of the top 50 grossing films of all time are what you’d call VFX films, so it’s no wonder Hollywood continues to feed us superhero and sci-fi themes with variable success. Some people claim VFX has made the industry lazy; while others point out that VFX helps filmmakers tell stories in fresh and inventive ways. We’ll be joined by VFX professionals including Sheila Wickens (On Chesil Beach), Paddy Eason (God’s Own Country) and Dan Martin (Free Fire) to get their views.
