“The British Council presents Film, Archive and Music Lab: a week of screenings, live performance and collaboration between film and music professionals in partnership with the British Film Institute, PRS for Music Foundation and HOME in Manchester. The week will begin on 29th February 2016.
Film, Archive and Music Lab will explore the creative potential of collaboration between the worlds of cinema, film archive and music. The British Council has invited 18 artists and producers – including music makers, film makers and video game composers – to take part in a series of workshops, masterclasses, screenings and networking events all with the aim of increasing opportunities for cross-sector work, while providing a fertile breeding ground for future collaborations. The programme is inspired by the creative and popular success of event cinema and live performances of film scores, including the BFI Archive’s international tour, “The Hitchock 9“.
We’re bringing together an exciting group of participants from East Asia and the UK as part of this opportunity for professional development and they are: Lisa Meyer, William Doyle (East India Youth), Masaaki Yoshida (Anchorsong), Ruth Paxton, Jessica Curry, Roly Porter, Shiva Feshareki, Lisa Gunning, Nick Abrahams, Jay Bedwani, Owen Wang, Aoura Chandra, Nguyen Manh Duy Linh, Nguyen Quoc Trung, Fikri Fadzil, Jeremy Mayall, Chunhwi Park and Thanapol Setabrahmana. PRS for Music Foundation has helped to fund and select the UK based music creators who are taking part in the Lab.
