Shure Supports Emerging Filmmakers At Little Wing Film Festival

News Image
Shure is supporting Little Wing Film Festival for the second year in a row. The Festival is exclusively for first-time filmmakers, students, and recent graduates and provides them with the tools and opportunities to foster career growth.

This year, Shure is sponsoring and supporting three film categories: Best Director, Film Futures Award and the Film Enterprise Award. The Company will be providing three prize bundles, each consisting of a VP83F LensHopper™ Camera-Mount Condenser Microphone with Integrated Flash Recording and SRH840 Professional Monitoring Headphones.

Little Wing grew out of passion, persistence, and frustration at the difficulty of finding paid work for young professionals beginning their creative careers. The Festival is returning for a third year in September, screening some of the best new films from emerging filmmakers across the globe.

Growing every year, 2019 brings a larger venue and wider platform for filmmakers to learn, share and collaborate, while furthering the dialogue around industry challenges faced by today’s emerging auteurs.

Highlights from previous years include Sir Ian McKellen voicing an animated film, and Master's student collaborations with DOP Robbie Ryan (The Favourite, American Honey). This year, Little Wing Film Festival welcomes as a patron Jamie Robson. Jamie won the award for Best Male Actor in 2018 for his role in Blue Christmas, which also won for Best UK Film. Jamie is an active ambassador and champion of Scottish and British independent film.

Shure believes in the spirit of Little Wing Film Festival and the importance of nurturing new talent and the industry of tomorrow. Paul Crognale, Manager of Global Marketing for Musician and Consumer Audio at Shure, comments: "We're proud to be supporting Little Wing Film Festival again this year by providing prizes for three awards. It's very important to us to continue championing emerging talent and supporting young people entering creative industries." 

Festival Director Mariah Mathew added: "Thanks to partners who continue to support young people breaking into the creative industries, we have another arsenal of fantastic prizes to award our winning filmmakers, including advice sessions with members of BBC Films.

"This year we have added two new categories to reward elements of filmmaking we nurture in the future of film: accomplishing brilliant work on a micro budget, the Enterprise Award, and championing challenging storytelling and representation on and off screen, the Future Film Award.

"We're looking for works of all lengths and genres from students, recent graduates, and first-time filmmakers. Submissions for the festival close on July 22 and can be submitted by FilmFreeway."
