The opening event will celebrate work from the Lincoln School of Film & Media; the 6 films to be shown that night include 2 by students, 3 by staff (with multiple student/staff involvement) and 1 from our colleague Tom Brandau at Moorhead State University Minnesota as a celebration of 15 years of the Moorhead exchange programme.
The festival is sponsored by the School of Film and Media at the University of Lincoln and Arts Council England through Lincoln BIG’s Cultural Destinations Funding. Films will compete for prizes in several categories. These prizes take the form of an ‘Imp’, inspired by the Lincoln Imp as the emblem for our city. The mischievous Imp is the perfect embodiment of the independent filmmaker’s spirit.
