dBs Film is off to Portugal

At dBs Film, we believe in providing as many opportunities for our students to learn and grow as possible. That's why, for the second year in a row, we've partnered with FEST New Directors | New Films Festival.   

The festival is focused on up-and-coming filmmakers and provides a professional space to show and promote work, develop skills and opportunities, and build new audiences for independent cinema. With a full programme of exceptional masterclasses from leading industry professionals, a pitching forum judged by world-renowned experts, a film festival of debut directors and a location on the beautiful Portuguese coast - what more could you want?
