Lfs's Ben Gibson to join Berlin film school amid student protests

19 October 2015 5:42 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Ben Gibson, former director of the London Film School (Lfs), is set to become the first non-German director of Berlin’s German Film & Television Academy (dffb).

Gibson was selected by the appointments committee over rival applications by filmmakers Bela Tarr and Romuald Karmakar, producer Dagmar Jacobsen and Pavel Jech, currently Dean of Prague’s Famu, as the successor to the previous director Jan Schütte.

Gibson left the Lfs last year after 13 years as director to become director of degree programmes at the Australian Film, Television & Radio School (Aftrs) in Sydney.

Gibson is no stranger to the dffb having recruited the Berlin academy as one of the European partners in the Making Waves distribution and marketing workshop with Paris’ La Fémis, Barcelona’s Ecac, and Romania’s Unatc.

During his time at Lfs, Gibson collaborated with the dffb on the Serial Eyes postgraduate high-level TV series writing and producing programme, launched in January 2013.
