EICAR International Department’s Production Period started a few weeks ago. As every year, the film projects presented by the students reflect the diversity of their multicultural backgrounds and sources of inspiration.
The International Department launched their 2018 production season on May 25th with EICAR student Surya Singh’s film . Out of the 33 projects presented to the Greenlighting Committee, 26 projects were retained with 23 approved for production.
As every year, the themes and subject matter are extremely varied, ranging from BFA2 student Joshua Watson’s Civil War drama, Peacemaker, to BFA3 student Romana Cicova’s coming-of-age drama How Eve Grew Up Fast, to BFA3 student Julio Marmol Corbacho SF adventure Droit de NaÎtre. Surprisingly, for the first time, two of the students’ films have a vampire theme.
The director of the International Department, Bob Swaim, commented, “The professional quality and diversity of the material is extremely good this year and I am optimistic that several of our films will be on the film festival circuit next year.”
The production period officially ends at the end of July, with post production during August and September. The films are presented to the Academic jury in October. A selection of the films will be presented at the Cinemathèque française, in the prestigious Henri Langlois theatre before an international jury of film professionals.
