BA (Hons) Film Production alumnus, Felix Schmilinsky’s debut feature film, A Moving Image, premiered at the 60th BFI London Film Festival.

Felix graduated in 2010, and worked as Director of Photography on the award winning multimedia feature film about gentrification in Brixton, incorporating fiction, documentary and performance art.

The film has previously screened in the US at LA Film Festival, Black Star Film Festival, Philadelphia and Urban World, New York.

Felix says: “The film follows Nina, a young stifled artist, as she returns to her community after a long absence – she is soon painted as a symbol of gentrification.

As she struggles with her own complicity, we follow her mission to create a piece of art that can bring her community together.

On her journey we speak to real people affected by gentrification in Brixton, blurring the line between reality and fiction.
