Screenlife Liverpool, BFI and ICE presents…

Timur Bekmambetov

Saturday 4 July will see Screenlife Liverpool, BFI and Institute of Creative Enterprise at Edge Hill University join forces to take the Screenlife film format to the masses with a Masterclass by Film Director and Screenlife founder, Timur Bekmambetov.

BFI Film Academy Lab will focus on exploring Screenlife – a new, immersive storytelling format, which allows filmmakers to tell their stories entirely on computer, tablet and smartphone screens. Instead of a film set, there’s a desktop. Instead of protagonist’s actions, a cursor.

The revolutionary Screenlife technology was developed by the award-winning director and producer Timur Bekmambetov and has grown from independent projects to full-length, world-renowned films, documentaries and TV shows. We are delighted to announce that Timur will be joining us for a masterclass to discuss the inception of Screenlife, and how you can use this pioneering technology yourselves for your upcoming projects!

The masterclass will be followed by individual pitching sessions for selected participants. These sessions will be an opportunity for you to pitch your Screenlife ideas directly to Timur for a chance to greenlight your projects.
