Shalini Adnani’s Term 5 short 'Algo Más Banal' (Something More Banal), which she wrote and directed, has been nominated for the 'Best Screenplay Award' at Eindhoven Film Festival.
Algo Más Banal is a dark comedy reflecting the bizarre realities of how we deal with death in our contemporary world. It takes place on an unusual work day, as people contemplate life and the dead man hanging in front of them in a Mexican factory.

The LFS Board congratulates Jane on her new appointment as Professor, Pro-Vice Chancellor, and Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Creative Industries and Education at UWE (University of the West of England) where she will start in September.

As well as hosting a breakfast with thought leaders in the post-production industry, exploring ways the film school can best prepare graduates for new workflows and emerging forms and formats, we spent much of our time promoting the work of our students to producers, commissioners and sales agents, all on the lookout for new talent.
