open mouth film festival

Funded by the Post-Grad Community Project Fund, the Open Mouth Film Festival was created by three students from the University of the Arts London: Lelia Byron (MA Fine Art Chelsea), Minqi Xu (MFA Fine Art Wimbledon), and Olga Tarasova (MRes Art: Theory and Philosophy Central Saint Martins).

The five-day festival, which took place at multiple locations throughout London from July 6-10, 2019, sought to embrace creative thinking, social activism, and diversity of thought and solution. It also aimed to open discourse in the use of technology as a medium to reflect the current events of the world.

The film festival showcased the work of approximately 150 BA, MA, Graduate Diploma, and PhD students from 11 universities. Over 5 days, the festival screened 76 student films totaling 20.5 hours.
