Offering insight into a variety of film industry careers, these sessions will welcome EIFF guest filmmakers to talk about their work, whether as Composer, Cinematographer, Actor or Scriptwriter (and more), and how they broke into the industry.
We will be welcoming Composer Anne Nikitin whose score for 2012 EIFF festival hit The Imposter was nominated for Best Original Score at the Cinema Eye Honors Awards in New York.
In 2006, Anne won the BBC New Talent, New TV Composers Scheme. The prize was a commission to score a BBC Natural World film, White Falcon, White Wolf, which won a Merit Award for Music at the Missoula Wildlife Film Festival. Since then she has composed music for the BBC, Channel4, Film4, five, A&E, History Channel, Discovery, National Geographic, and Sky Movies, as well as a range of independent films.
Also attending is Mark Gordon from Score Draw, a Northern Irish DJ, sync agent, and documentary score writer, whose recent credit is the 2014 documentary ROAD, about two generations of one family united by success and tragedy as two sets of brothers compete in the dangerous sport of motorcycle road racing, narrated by Liam Neeson
