Q&A with Philip Ilson, director of the London Short Film Festival
Saturday 14 May 2022, by
More Q&As! As Coco Green gets stuck in the final chapters of her PhD, we take a break from our usual format to publish Q&As and whatever audio output we fancy.
To mark our partnership with the Clermont-Ferrand International Film Festival and celebrate short films, we had a chat with Philip Ilson, founder and director of the London Short Film Festival, and film programmer (for the BFI London Film Festival, amongst others) . We talk about film clubs in the 1990s, the festival’s early days, programming freedom and short films to look out for.
