Official Line-up is Announced!

Films from entries by students at Elam School of Fine Arts have been selected for ELAM PAST AND PRESENT – an exhibition evening held at the Academy Cinema on 17 October showcasing the films of past and present Elam students.

Ten short films have been chosen to screen alongside works by Elam graduates, Florian Habicht and Briar March.

”The overall quality of the entries was outstanding, making the selection process extremely difficult. However, a decision has been made and we now have some really innovative films to show to the public,” says Exhibition Director, Katrin Hagen.
