Festival Close-up… Take 2

Saturday Morning 18th Feb, 9.30-11.45 am.

Whilst the Festival’s Saturday morning session is primarily aimed at the village’s younger residents, it’s also unmissable for anyone interested in film and film-making.

Not only will we be announcing and showing the winner of our Chorleywood Young Film-makers Competition, there’s also an opportunity to hear two local film directors/producers from the judging panel (Graham Ralph and Ed Foster), talk, show and answer questions about examples of their own work!

We’ll be screening Graham’s BAFTA winning children’s short animated film The Forgotten Toys, an example of Ed’s work (Ed directed the BAFTA nominated children’s television series Little Princess’) and Perched’, the impressive graduate film from recent National Film and Television School student, Liam Harris.

The morning’s final highlight is the the classic short feature film The Red Balloon.  This enchanting Oscar and Palme D’Or winning film, follows a six-year old boy and the biggest, shiniest red balloon ever as they share adventures tagging each other through the old Belleville section of Paris.

Local compere extraordinaire, Martin Clarkson will be introducing and moderating this specially priced session.
