18:00 - 19:00 Screening of ‘SUDDEN LIGHT’ (age guidance 15+ death and swearing) - A short film, followed by Q&A with its director and UCL alumni Sophie Littman

Sophie Littman’s short film SUDDEN LIGHT was selected for competition in Cannes Film Festival 2020 and nominated for a BIFA 2021. After graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art, Sophie created a series of short experimental films that went on to screen at festivals such as Aesthetica and LSFF and shown via online platforms such as Nowness, and It’s Nice That. Her latest short, KNOW THE GRASS, was supported by the BFI and BBC Film. The film was selected for competition at London Film Festival 2021 and longlisted for a BIFA. Sophie was selected as a Screen Star of Tomorrow 2021 and is currently developing her first feature. After her film is screened, we’ll talk with Sophie about the challenges of making SUDDEN LIGHT, and what her numerable short have taught her about making films in general.
