Sparks Filmmakers at Barnes Film Festival

We are thrilled to announce that two films by Sparks Film Students have been selected for screening at the Barnes Film Festival!

Chair Farm and How Do You Feel? have both been selected for official entry to the Barnes Film Festival.

This will be the first film festival entry for Chair Farm.

Chair Farm is a short film production made by Studio 5 filmmakers (ages 14-18) at Sparks Film School Balham. It’s a popular favourite amongst Sparks Film School staff, students and amongst the community on our YouTube channel. We are so happy to see Chair Farm receive the recognition it deserves for its originality and creativity! 

How Do You Feel?, which has just been screened at the internationally acclaimed Northampton Film Festival, and also won the IntoFilm Film of the Month award recently, this represents another success and a great opportunity for the film to be seen by a wider audience.

How Do You Feel? Was created by our Studio 5 at Sparks Film School Highgate in their weekly classes. The film was very recently screened at Northampton Film Festival at the Northampton Filmhouse as part of the 16 years and under competition. We are so proud of the filmmakers for all they have achieved with this fantastic film!
