Director/Writer: Lauren Bell

I am a MA Filmmaking student from the US currently studying at Kingston University London.  I completed the Bachelors of Science degree in Media Communications at Full Sail University in the US before moving to London to study for a Masters in Filmmaking.  This project is my dissertation film to complete my course.

An eccentric mother, Mai and her two daughters, June and July (Jules) go on a last holiday before June moves away for university.  The film focuses on exploring relationships between female characters through the alternative style of filmmaking known as the female glance.  

The film is a narrative, slice of life style drama.

Where will the money go?

All donations will be used to complete the film. 

  • Venue hire (4 Days): £850
