Changing the World

By Jonny Persey | Categorised in News, Film Festival Diary, Events at Met Film School

This week Met Film’s latest feature doc, How To Change the World, beat off stiff competition to win the prestigious Environment Award at the Sheffield Doc/Fest – click here to read a fabulous interview in today’s Guardian with director Jerry Rothwell.  The film, which also won two prizes at Sundance earlier this year, has an exclusive preview screening at the grand launch party of Picturehouse Central, a brand new 7 screen cinema in the heart of London’s West End on the evening of Thursday 18th June. To celebrate we are giving away 2 pairs of tickets to the event which also includes cocktails, tasters from the new menu, live music, and a few surprises on the night. To enter the prize draw, simply email your name and phone number to rsvp@metfilm.co.uk by midnight on Tuesday 16th June – and the successful winners will be notified on Wednesday morning.

How To Change The World is the story of the pioneers who founded Greenpeace and defined the modern green movement. This award-winning film uses never before seen archive that brings their extraordinary world to life.

Look out for the masterclasses with director Jerry Rothwell, editor James Scott, producer Al Morrow, and myself between now and the release of the film in September.

I always love the incredible variety of production happening in the Met Film community at any one time. The Mayhew Animal Home recently launched the ‘Therapaws’ project – a service that supports the wellbeing of elderly people by encouraging them to interact with visiting pups. Check out this video feature by the Daily Mirror made by our MA students for their industry integrated project.

Meanwhile, 2nd year BA students are mid edit on feature films Chapel (made in and around our Ealing campus) and Krush (made in and around the Berlin campus), and start shooting a third feature film, Loulou, in London on Monday.  On the same day, one cohort of first year BA students start preproduction on web series Upstage whilst another kick off their short film module – such is the veritable hive of production activity that is Met Film School!
