Online Seminar

"Short Films: Business or Pleasure?"

Wednesday 23 September 2020

The 11th annual British & Irish Film Festival Luxembourg (BIFFL) which is taking place between 18-26 September 2020, have confirmed details of the speakers for the online seminar entitled “Short Films: Business or Pleasure?” that is taking place on Wednesday 23 September 2020 from 18:00 – 19:00, in collaboration with the Ireland Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce (ILCC).
The online seminar “Short Films: Business or Pleasure?” will take an in-depth look into the business of short films. While some filmmakers make short films to gain experience and learn the ropes with the aim of graduating to making feature films, others make short films for the pure pleasure of telling a story on screen, often on a shoestring budget. Others again have high aspirations and struggle to achieve their dreams.
The seminar will look at the three primary stages of film-making: pre-production (writing), production (shooting) and post-production (editing) and everything else that goes into the process of making films.
The following presenters are now confirmed:
- Eibh COLLINS, Short Film Programmer at the Galway Film Fleadh since 2016 (
- Eileen BYRNE, film-maker from Luxembourg (; known for "Touch Me")
- Graham CANTWELL, film-maker from Ireland (; known for "Lily")
- Guy DALEIDEN, Managing Director, Film Fund Luxembourg (
The presenters will share their experiences, perspectives and insight into the (short) film industry.
Registration by email to Those registered will be sent the link to the online seminar which will open 15 minutes before the scheduled start time. There is no charge to attend.
