BFI LLGFF Trailer - 'What's in a Name?'

*For Optimum sound, please wear earphones.

The BFI LLGFF is thinking of changing its name and when we were approached to come up with the idea for this years trailer, we knew we had a real challenge on our hands. We took inspiration from slam poetry and Shakespeare, and shot all of the visuals in camera. We wanted to make something that was not only visually arresting, but also provoked thought, whilst staying true to the festival as it approaches a pivotal moment in its history. A big thank you to everyone involved.
