Academy Films: Hail to the Chiefs

  • 90 mins

You may not know them by name, but you will undoubtedly know Academy Films by trade.

Based in London, they are one of the world's leading production houses for commericals, music videos and feature films, having masterminded some of the UK's most recognised and revered television adverts (Jonathan Glazer's exploding paintball symphony on a council estate for Sony, anyone??) as well as countless iconic, era-defining music videos for the likes of The Verve, Massive Attack, Keane, Groove Armada and hot new Edward Scissorhand types, The Horrors. We'll be putting their finest on the big screen for all to admire; and Academy insiders including award-winning directors Corin Hardy and Si&Ad will be on hand, allowing us to pick at their creative brains like the little monkeys we are.
