We have decided to request film submissions and source new films and have confirmed dates for an October Festival – from 15 to 17th at the Old Market Hall and from 22 to 24th at Kinokulture. Details here.
A LAST LOOK AT OUR CONTRIBUTION TO LGBT+ HISTORY MONTH!
We were so happy to work again with Shrewsbury LGBT+ History Festival. This year we sourced 3 films: 2 feature documentaries, our ‘Festival Choice’ short film, Ionut & Calin, and eight other short films. These were all selected for our Festival 2020, which we had to cancel, so to still be able to screen them, albeit online, was just great. We were very pleased to be able to assist in the appointment of a Marketing Officer to promote these events, thanks to a a grant from the Community Foundation for Staffordshire
For details of all 11 shorts we selected – click here. 3 of the shorts are now accessible without a Password. So – enjoy
