Sheffield film school is launching a new documentary program called “Bard Film School”.
The programme is a collaboration between the film school and the Sheffield Film Society, a community-based group that supports and develops young filmmakers.
“We want to bring young filmmakers together with local and international talent to make a film that is relevant and inspiring to our community,” said the school’s director, Anna-Louise McNeill.
“Our goal is to create a culture where we can share and learn from each other.”
Bard film school aims to create an exciting, new, and exciting place where young filmmakers can work collaboratively to make films and inspire a new generation of filmmakers.
“The film school’s programme is an extension of a programme launched in 2013 called “The First Film School”, which helped young Sheffield filmmakers to learn the ropes of filmmaking and make a living.
The programme was originally conceived by the film department, but was extended and rebranded as “The Fellowship”.
In 2017, the Fellowship expanded to include the Sheffield Foundation and the Institute for Creative Studies.
In 2018, the fellowship extended to include a new project, called “Drama in the Sky”, which aims to provide a framework for young filmmakers to explore the themes and issues of modern life through documentary-style footage.
The fellowship also extends to an additional fellowship, called The First Film Education Fellowship.”
It’s about learning together, building a community, and creating an environment where young people can come together to explore a topic in depth and create a project that reflects their personal vision,” said Anna-Louis McNeill, director of the Fellowship.
In 2017-2018, the school served a total of 619 young people who were interested in pursuing a film career.
The film program will continue to expand to include new fellows each year, but McNeill said that in 2018, it will be a group of four young people, who have all been involved in the fellowship.”
The school has also partnered with the Sheffield Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art to help create a unique and interactive space for the students to collaborate with artists and the community.””
They’re all very passionate about the project and want to share their stories and their experiences with us.”

“When you think of the cultural centre and how it has been transformed into a centre of art and film, you realise that we’re going to have a real-world experience where people can work together,” McNeill added.
“There’s a real sense of community here, and we want to be able to have that on a bigger scale.”
Bards and filmmakers are a relatively new demographic, and McNeill hopes that the programme will encourage more young people to become involved in filmmaking.
“They have such an innate understanding of the creative process and how to get their films made,” she explained.
“That’s something that we haven’t really touched on in our curriculum.”BARD film school will run from March to September 2019, with students spending eight weeks on-campus and three weeks on the road.
It will be open to students from any part of the UK and will be able provide a space to meet people and meet opportunities.
