Festivals

Since 2007, Sam has been the director of the Lantern Film Festival and subsequently the Electric Lantern Festival. During that time the festivals screened such movies as Red Sands which went on to win the Raindance award for best documentary in that year, and Dummy, featuring Nowhere Boy's Aaron Johnson in his first leading role.

In 2012, Sam commissioned the AudiToury project, in which 21 short stories were recorded at the locations they were set in at locations around the Festival.

In 2013, the first time the Electric Lantern Festival screened national and international submissions, it required the addition of four extra days to the schedule to cope with demand.

Despite the huge artistic and critical success of the Electric Lantern Motion Picture Festival in 2013, Sam would like to change the format to a longer-running film season and move to a different time of year, so has decided to put the Festival on hiatus for the short term while he decides on the format and concentrates on his motion picture work.
