Into Film at the Cambridge Film Festival


As part of the forthcoming Cambridge Film Festival (28 Aug - 7 Sept), Into Film are hosting a careers talk for young people about opportunities in the film VFX industry.

Ever wondered how the visual effects (VFX) you see at the cinema are created?  Did you know that amazing scenes from Gravity, Harry Potter and Robocop were all created here in the UK?

If you have knowledge of art, photography and design or maybe a strong foundation in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths), and computer science subjects perhaps you should consider a career in VFV?  Come along to this talk with industry professionals and university course leaders to find out more.  The UK, which is a world leader in this field, is facing a serious skills shortage and needs young people with knowledge in these subjects.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Professor Jeffrey Baggott - Dean of Faculty - Media and Performance/Acting HoS Performance Arts University Bournemouth  (AUB)
  • Pete Truckel - Director - The VFX Hub at Bournemouth University 

It’s your chance to find out about:  

  • The careers opportunities are available in a rewarding, hands-on and creative industry.
  • The skills VFX professionals need to take their expertise to international production centres.
  • Choosing the right course.

A careers map and information about next steps will also be provided

Location: Harrods Room, Emmanuel College, Cambridge

Cambridge Film Festival volunteers will guide you from the main gates of Emmanuel College on St Andrews Street  to the Harrods Room for the workshop.
