The Smalls, a content marketplace that connects filmmakers with brands, publishers and agencies, has brought in consumer lifestyle PR agency See.Saw to handle the PR for the 11th annual Short Film Festival, which starts on Friday (2 September).
Festival highlights include a keynote speech from Jon Drever, executive producer of 2014 Oscar nominated Virunga and director of Grain Media, a new category honouring local filmmakers from East London, a panel discussion on the “secrets of successful modern-day comedy writing”, and a “Future for Publishers in the Online Content World” panel discussion, with speakers from Stylist, LAD Bible and News UK.
The Festival closes with an awards ceremony on Wednesday September 7 which will be presented by comedian and presenter Eleanor Conway.
