:he Yards Covent Garden, in partnership with London Film School, is launching a series of exclusive outdoor film screenings as part of its Summer Box Office programme of alfresco entertainment.
Every Tuesday evening from July 13th, St Martin’s courtyard will screen to enjoy a series of curated BFI London Film Festival nominated films and Cannes Film Festival’s short film selections from some of the UK’s most promising writers and directors.
Over 20 short films are to be screened for free throughout July and August, including: Summer Shade by Shira Haimovici capturing Israeli summer days, the discovery of a Mermaid in Cornwall in The Mermaid of Mevagissey by Luc Mollinger and a journey to India to meet a rap-loving Sikh boy who wants a new hairdo in Mast Qalander by Divij Roopchand.
Gisli Snaer, director and CEO of London Film School, said: “I’m delighted to share with our local community a curated screening programme of unique voices. At 65 years, we are the oldest film school in the UK. Our storytellers have come from all over the world since 1956 and will continue to shine a light onto distinctive stories. I hope you enjoy the historic films of our LFS Archive alongside our graduation films. These works have been created by our gifted filmmakers who have gone on to gather many accolades and continue to create impactful works.”
