New Talent Day – for emerging international journalists and filmmakers
The London College of Communication is hosting a free event for student journalists and filmmakers, as well as emerging professionals, titled the New Talent Day.
The event will focus on creative, innovative ways to tell international stories, particularly stories from the developing world. It will feature experienced media professionals, including people who commission content, discussing their work and answering questions.
The event is being run by the charity One World Media, as part of the Beyond Your World project, which is inspiring the next generation of journalists in Europe to cover global issues.
You can register for free here: http://newtalentday.eventbrite.co.uk/.
Speakers will include Seyi Rhodes, award winning journalist and filmmaker and regular reporter for Channel 4’s Unreported World; Andrea Thompson, Features Director at Marie Claire; and the team behind the acclaimed BBC Two film Toughest Place to be a Binman, in which a London binman went to Indonesia to find out about the lives of people doing the same job in Jakarta.
On the day there will also be the opportunity to pitch brief ideas for creative ways to cover international stories.
One World Media is a charity that promotes media that contributes to global dialogue and understanding, human rights and development. It has run a number of events at LCC before, including a showcase evening for student media about international stories. Read more: www.oneworldmedia.org.uk.

The Artist Adventurer From The Urban Wasteland To The Final Frontier
Screening and Panel Discussion Wednesday 1 May 2013, 5.15 – 7pm Lecture Theatre, Wimbledon College of Art Merton Hall Road, Wimbledon SW19 3QA RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
This discussion and screening accompanies the group exhibition Witnessing the Wilderness at Wimbledon Space and interrogates our preconceptions of the wilderness, and the role of the artist as adventurer, witness and mediator. Wilderness is both physical topography and a social and cultural construct, promising an untrammeled refuge or a stage for physical challenge and heroic endeavour. Meanwhile, the growth of technologies brings wild places into clear view, allowing them to be witnessed remotely or experienced through mass tourism, producing a complex and evolving definition. The event will include film screenings by artists who are part of the exhibition.
This is a Wimbledon Space event in association with CCW Graduate School Public Research Platforms.
The Fashion in Film Festival returns in May 2013 with its fourth edition, Marcel L’Herbier: Fabricating Dreams. The season is dedicated to one of France’s most innovative but overlooked directors and features his film from both the silent and sound eras. A unique showcase of L’Herbier’s vision, the programme highlights exquisite fashions, modernist architecture and design, against the backdrop of the glamorous locations of the Côte d’Azur and Paris.
Friday 10 – Sunday 19 May 2013
At BFI Southbank, Barbican, The Horse Hospital, Ciné Lumière and Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design.
The programme will be the first time that some of L’Herbier’s most significant feature films and shorts have been gathered together into a coherent showcase in the UK. It was L’Herbier’s cross-disciplinary collaborative approach that helped establish him as a seminal figure within Paris’ vibrant artistic milieu of the inter-war years.
The Festival programme uses fashion and design as the prism through which to examine L’Herbier’s diverse body of work. As illustrated by some of his most remarkable films such as L’Argent (1928), L’Inhumaine (1923) and L’Epervier (1933), the director had a keen interest in fashion and style, an interest that culminated in his short La Mode revée (1938), a ‘fashion film’ dedicated to promoting the major French couturiers at the 1939 World Fair in New York.
We are pleased to announce the seventh meeting of Afterall Film Club on Thursday 18 April 2013. Stuart Brisley will introduce a film of his choice, which will be discussed following its full screening.
Stuart Brisley is best known for his influence on the development of performance art but also works in painting, sculpture, community projects, ‘pseudo-curatorial installations’, sound and moving image. Uniting all these working methods is a concern for the everyday, for things that have fallen down (detritus on the streets, human excrement) and the marginalised (miners, bin men, homeless people). ‘All work,’ Brisley comments, ‘needs content. Without content there is no work.’ Brisley lives and works in London, Dungeness and Istanbul.
Date: Thursday, April 18 2013 Time: 6.30pm – 9pm Location: Lecture Theatre E002, Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, 1 Granary Square, London, N1C 4AA

Afterall Film Club is free and takes place eight times a year at Central Saint Martins. The club has been chaired by Laura Mulvey, Dexter Dalwood, Mark Leckey, John Stezaker, Nina Power and Anne Tallentire.
This screening and performance event will address different spatial configurations in moving image work, using Andy Warhol’s 16mm double projection, Outer and Inner Space (1965), as a point of departure.
