The International Student Film Organization is delighted to announce its partnership with the film website MUBI and the platform for independent film making talent, Garage. This partnership will include hosting the winning films of the ISFO’s monthly film making competition on Garage and the promotion of Garage and MUBI to the members of the ISFO.
In January 2010 MUBI introduced Garage. Developed by Tobias Morgan, Garage was designed to be an online film production studio and workshop geared towards finding independent filmmakers with engaging work and connecting them to a worldwide audience.
The ISFO and Garage share a series of similar goals which mainly include boosting the internet as a viable distribution platform and the support of a new generation of young film makers.
The International Student Film Organization (ISFO) is a FREE online film network which aims to connect young film makers from all over the world to each other and the industry. Its targets are to increase the overall visibility and quality of student films and to support the next generation of international talent.
Registered in London, the ISFO is based at www.futureinfilm.com. The website serves as a gateway for students to access benefits such as a newsletter, their own customized profile ad portfolio, forums, competitions, discounts and internal messaging services. Companies are invited to publish information about competitions, festivals and products which are relevant to film students.
The ISFO feels that with the film industry ‘facing one of the most challenging periods of change in its 115-year history’ (Screendaily.com), it is more important than ever to encourage a new, outstanding generation of young film makers to believe in their talent and pursue a career in the industry. The transnational platform will enable students to discuss their ideas with people from other countries and support them in critically evaluating their skills on an international market.
