SFFL 2017: Art vs. Stepping Stone - An Argument

Art vs. Stepping Stone - An Argument: Sundance Meets London
Presented in association with LSFF (London Short Film Festival)

Sundance and LSFF host a short filmmaker discussion about straddling the worlds of the auteur and the commercial. Are shorts simply a stepping stone or do they sustain a filmmaker throughout a career? With a focus on two women filmmakers, each one working in those potentially opposing areas, we hope for a heated debate and a fascinating discussion.

Hosted by Mike Plante (Sundance) and Philip Ilson (London Short Film Festival & BFI London Film Festival). Jessica Levick and Taina Galas are panellists.

Jessica Levick (producer): Jessica has produced a number of short films, including Saturday [Mike Forshaw], which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, plus the feature documentary Personal Best [Sam Blair] about athletes training for the 2012 Olympics.

Taina Galas (cinematographer & producer): Taina is a Romanian-born cinematographer who has worked closely with a number of directors including Fyzal Boulifa, Emily Wardill, and Andrea Luka Zimmerman (on her features Estate A Reverie and Erase and Forget). She also acted as producer on Fyzal's Cannes winning short Rate Me.
