Our final panel of the Festival is today!
From Shorts to Features
For many filmmakers, short films provide a necessary springboard
to generating interest and securing funding for a feature project.
But what are the challenges of making the leap from shorts to
features? What new artistic demands are placed on the writer,
director and others? Is it possible to work with the same group of
people, or will you require new producers and a new crew? How do
the expectations for the final product change? Join a diverse group
of directors as they share their experiences, offer advice for
budding filmmakers, and discuss current trends and issues facing
the short film industry. Panelists include Nawaf
Al-Janahi (director of Sea Shadow) and other ADFF
From Shorts to Features takes place Thursday,
October 20 from 11:00am until 12:30pm at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr,
Saker Ballroom A.
