Brighton’s Big Screen
Brighton’s Big Screen will be screening the BYFF 2013 winning films all through August! This couldn’t be more exciting.
So, if you’re one of our winners, please let us know if you manage to make it down to watch your film - maybe take a photograph of you with the screen.
We don’t just want the winners watching these films - anyone who entered BYFF 2013 film competition, took part in workshops, volunteered at the festival or had a friend who did, go down and watch the films!
Here are the times, make a note and do go down. The screen is right by the main pier and completely free- what a great way to spend your afternoon:
Thursday 8th August – 12:30 (followed by the film Shark Tale)
Tuesday 13th August – 14:30 (straight after Finding Nemo)
Saturday 17th August – 11:30 (followed by Raiders of the Lost Ark)
Sunday 25th August – 11:30 (followed by more excellent shorts and Formula 1)
If you haven’t already heard of Brighton’s Big Screen then head to their website - they’re showing 4-5 films a day, for free, for children and adults. They also have talks by local publisher Myriad, short film screenings and Ashes coverage.
Corel Software review of BYFF’s Award Ceremony
One of our prize donators, Corel, have a smashing chap called Ben who came to the BYFF Award Ceremony on Saturday 29th and has since written a review of the event for us. It’s a brilliant read and will serve as a reminder of how exciting the night was. We hope you all like it.
'On Saturday 29 June, the sun finally came out in the UK for Corel to attend the first ever Brighton Youth Film Festival.
On arrival at the venue, the Brighton Museum, I could already feel the buzz of young people about. The building was decorated with bright blue balloons and festival banners ready to host a room filled with aspiring film makers’.

Thank you Ben!

BHASVIC (Brighton, Hove & Sussex Sixth Form College) were fantastic enough to film BYFF’s Saturday Silverbox Multimedia workshop at Brighton Museum and also the Award Ceremony! Gather around and watch their film from the weekend - it’s a great insight into the festival. You might even be in it!
Thank you BHASVIC but we wanted to say a special thank you to Alison Cousens, whose dedicated students Elisabeth Shanahan, Ethan English and Kate Leighton all made and edited the film. We love it.
