Great news aspiring filmmakers, Greenhorn is joining forces with London Film Academy for our Industry Day on Saturday 14 November. London Film Academy’s courses offer extensive hands-on experience in the six key disciplines of filmmaking: directing, editing, screenwriting, producing, cinematography and sound. For Greenhorn 2015 they will be offering a workshop focusing on the producing side. This will be perfect for emerging filmmakers who want to get an overview on how to produce their own shorts from pre-production all the way through to distribution. The workshop will be just part of a string of industry events taking place at the thriving cultural hub that is Hackney’s Proud Archivist. It promises to be a stimulating day allowing filmmakers to meet peers and industry professionals in a friendly environment.
We are excited to announce that for this year’s festival we will be joining forces with Bertha DocHouse, for a special documentary screening at the newly renovated Curzon Bloomsbury. Nurturing and educating new filmmaking talent is at the heart of what Bertha DocHouse do, they offer aspiring doc filmmakers the chance to meet and learn from some of the most respected names in the documentary world through masterclasses, courses and educational strands. This will be your chance to experience some of the best short docs out there in one of the coolest Cinema spaces the capital has to offer.
And we’re off! Early Bird submissions for Greenhorn Short Film Festival 2015 open today. This year’s fest sees us return to our hub venue ArtHouse Crouch End which was voted Best Cinema by Time Out last year.

After three glorious years at the fabulous New Diorama Theatre Greenhorn is upping sticks to the newly opened At House Crouch End Cinema.
Here’s what Art House Crouch End have to say!
The former Salvation Army Hall (Music Palace) in Crouch End, North London has been transformed into a dynamic new cultural venue that will tear down the perceived fourth wall between genres of Art that currently exist in isolation, confined to their own specific buildings. By challenging the status quo that divides our cultural landscape, we hope to attract a mixed audience where class, race, gender, sexuality and religion can be celebrated and discussed in an open minded, creative atmosphere. We aim to develop new and classic works that reflect the multi-cultural and multi-faceted nature of city life. We are committed to collaborating with actors, writers, directors, filmmakers and investors from the vast array of diversity that reflect our lives and our communities.
By mixing the world of film, fine art, live music, discussion groups, theatre, live streaming, workshops, dance, comedy and whatever else that inspires, we strive to create a unique hub in North London for both Artists to feel at home in and lovers of art to be thoroughly entertained in.
