Watch Noir Short Film “Frank’s Lament” By Adil Ansari

Frank’s Lament by director Adil Ansari is a 2+ minute noir film centering around a moment of life or death. The plot is clever and tense and it is worth watching.

The London Film Academy (LFA) is a UK film school situated in Fulham, London. Founded in 2001 as a non-profit making trust, the LFA provides practical courses on a variety of film-making skills.

Initially, the stated ethos was to produce practical film courses that focused on the art of celluloid filmmaking, with lecturers that were active within the film industry.

In January 2006 the LFA formed a partnership with Club Panico. Panico was created in the mid eighties and has patrons that include Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Sir Ben Kingsley. Together with the London Film Academy, Panico now serves as a stepping stone to industry for graduate and post graduate students.

The LFA holds its annual graduation show at the BFI Southbank. Daisy Gili and Anna MacDonald co-founded the Academy and have served as joint principals of the LFA for fifteen years, and remain so as at 2019.

In 2016, Joseph A Adesunloye, an alumnus of the London Film Academy, was shortlisted for the IWC Filmmaker Bursary Award, in association with the BFI. The London Film Academy announced a scholarship for emerging female filmmakers, worth £23,000, in September 2017.

Amongst the academy’s tutors are cinematographer Andrew Speller, director David Pope, and screenwriter Kay Stonham. The academy’s partners include: British Film Institute (BFI), Arri, University of Derby and Anglia Ruskin University (Cambridge Campus).
