The Final Night of Film Week is upon us…

After two terrific nights in the Nancy Main auditorium and a fantastic send off to our grads at the sold-out Grad Gala on Wednesday night, ESA Film has one last trick up its sleeve.

On Thursday evening, Film Week returns to ESA for its final event.  25 brand new films will be screened for the first time anywhere and (if that weren’t enough), Mouna Traore (ESA Alum and television star) will present the 6th annual Shaftesbury Best in Show awards.

Tickets are available here, at lunch in the foyer or at the door tomorrow evening.

 

Film Week – one night down/ three to go

If you missed Monday night’s show, there are still three opportunities to experience the work of ESA’s Film majors.

Tickets for each show are available here.

Tuesday night marks Night #2 of Film Week – 25+ all new films debuting for the first time ever.

Wednesday night sees ESA’s Grad Gala take over The Tiff Bell Lightbox – a final goodbye to our grade 12s.

And Thursday night is the final night of Film Week – another brand new batch of premieres, followed by The 6th annual Shaftesbury Best in Show Awards, hosted by Mouna Traore, ESA grad and big time TV star.

Film Week is Here!

Starting tonight (Monday) in the Nancy Main Auditorium, ESA Film starts its annual 4 night marathon of film premieres.  Over 100 films will be screened for the first time anywhere this week: documentaries, narrative films, experimental pieces – you name it, it will be here.  It will be a week of laughing, crying and thinking – certainly something not to be missed.

Tickets are available here, at lunch in the foyer and at the door.

 

It’s nearly Film Week.

As you read this on a leisurely Sunday, perhaps you’re contemplating the week to come and how you might spend whatever free time you can muster.  To offer a suggestion, why not attend Film Week  – 3 different shows in The Nancy Main Auditorium and one night celebrating the achievements of ESA Film’s graduating class at the Tiff Bell Lightbox.

Tickets are available here.

And, oh, by the way, The Grad Gala is nearly sold out.  Only a handful of tickets remain for what promises to be a fantastic evening.  Don’t miss out.

Film Week is nearly here.

For 3 nights, on May 15th, 16th and 18th, ESA Film invades the Nancy Main Auditorium to showcase the work of our young filmmakers.  Each night is a different show featuring the work of ESA’s grade 9, 10 & 11 filmmakers (with a few gems from the Grade 12s thrown in for good measure).  Full week passes are available for purchase as are tickets for individual evenings.  Find them here.

The entire week concludes with The 6th Annual Shaftesbury Best in Show Awards – ESA’s very own Oscars.  ShaftesburyFilms has been a supporter of ESA Film since the inception of the program and every year they gather together a jury of industry professionals to award one film from each grade the prestigious Best in Show Award.  The awards happen on the Thursday of Film Week and are always one of the highlights of the year.

 

 

In only 24 hours of sales, ESA Film’s Grad Gala is 65% sold out. Don’t miss out. Get your ticket now.
