London Film School achieves historic success at Cannes

London Film SchoolStudent films from London Film School have achieved success at Cannes Film Festival for the third consecutive year.

Over the last three years, three London Film School student films have been selected at Cannes Film Festival – an achievement that makes film school history!

This year’s film, Praeis, is from Lithuanian director, Dovydas Drakšas, and also features in La Cinef (formerly known as Cinéfondation). In 2023, graduate film, Talking To The River by Chinese director, Yue Pan was selected for the Director’s Fortnight. Meanwhile, in 2022 Glorious Revolution by Ukrainian director and LFS grad, Masha Novikova, was selected for La Cinef and took third place.

London Film School Director and CEO, Chris Auty, says, “LFS is the first film school in the world to see three of its graduation films selected in the official competitive programme for three consecutive years – this is an incredible accomplishment.”

He adds, “The continued success of LFS students like Dovydas, Yue and Masha at Cannes Film Festival reflects the raw talent and hard work we see each day at the School. It also cements the School’s place as a top global filmmaking conservatoire, currently home to 52 nationalities.”

Dovydas joins several other LFS alumni to have been part of the Cannes Film Festival and La Cinef, including Hamid Ahmadi for the graduation film In The Hills, that won 2nd prize in 2016, and Zhannat Alshanova’s selection in 2018 for grad film End of Season.
