We are in the midst of a housing crisis that affects all Londoners. Rents and house prices continue to rise, overcrowding is endemic and social housing is scarce. More homes are being built but nowhere near enough to meet demand or provide genuinely affordable housing for low-income Londoners.
How is this crisis – and possible solutions to it – being documented?
LSE London are looking for short films about different aspects of London’s housing crisis for a mini-film festival that creates a dialogue between audiovisual practice and academic research about the possibilities and limits of the contemporary housing context in London. This event will bring together researchers, film-makers, practitioners and the general public, to discuss problems, solutions, and the future of the housing supply crisis in London. At the event LSE London will present some of its own short films about London housing.
LSE London announces a Call for Entries, accepting submissions for its Short Film Festival which will be held on July 13th 6-8 pm at LSE. Submissions will be accepted until June 19th.
Films should address any aspect of London’s contemporary housing situation and under ten minutes in length, but we are open to other short entries; live-action, animated, narrative and documentary formats are eligible. Submissions should be sent with a synopsis, URL or stills, and contact information to the addresses below.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com for more details and visit lselondonhousing.org/ for information about LSE London’s knowledge exchange project on housing.
