July 30 to August 4 sees Tower Hamlets’ Cemetery Park (THCP) – London’s most urban woodlands – become a unique festival of film, music and arts.
In a world first, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle – along with BAFTA Award-nominated director Clio Barnard (The Selfish Giant), award-winning director Sally El Hosaini (My Brother the Devil) and actor and director Dexter Fletcher (Sunshine on Leith, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) – will judge short films across three key categories: ‘Science and the Imagination’, ‘The City’ and ‘Young Filmmakers’ (under 25s).
Top prize is a one-on-one mentoring session with Danny Boyle.
Among other exclusive prizes on offer:
‘Science and the Imagination’
A trip to California to be part of the world’s most cutting-edge filmmaking and digital media technology, which includes a virtual reality session and a visit to Google HQ in Silicon Valley.
A one-on-one mentoring session with Danny Boyle – a remarkable insight into how the Oscar-winning filmmaker works – plus a trip to New York.
‘Young Filmmakers’ (under 25s)
Panalux advice and bespoke five-day lighting package for the winner’s next film.
Born out of the Community Land Trust (CLT) in 2013 , SHUFFLE is about bringing a sense of community back to London. In 2014, this initiative moves into the surrounding streets and Tower Hamlets’ Cemetery Park. Last year’s guests at SHUFFLE included Jarvis Cocker, Nic Roeg, Martin McDonagh, Julien Temple, Brian Cox, Tim Key, Underworld and Mark Kermode.
A full list of films and guests will be announced shortly.
Competition winners will be announced August 3.
