Our second Worcestershire Film Festival is almost here. Being held on 15-17th November and is running at three venues : The Hive, Worcester Arts Workshop and The Chapel Room on the University’s City Campus. We had nearly 1,100 people attend last year so we needed more space!
On the Friday night, at The Hive, we have our opening ceremony and a special screening of Hawking, a documentary (currently on a limited cinema run) about Stephen Hawking. We will be joined by the editor of the film for a q&a.
Meanwhile, at Worcester Arts Workshop, we hold our first of two After Dark sessions – films we wouldn’t show at day time! Slasher horrors, that sort of thing
On Saturday, we are showing a few features at The Hive but real attention is on Worcester Arts Workshop where we are screening all our competition shorts.
At the Uni campus, we have several workshops including Tony Chance, storyboard artist.
On the evening at 6pm, we’re doing something very special. We are showing a couple of films about the Civil War, both in our Worcester and Worcester, Massachusetts. We’re then going to video conference in an audience over there and our two peoples will q&a each other!! On our side, we will have dressed up cavaliers and Roundheads – going to be awesome!
Over the road to WAW and we’re playing Slasher House and hosting some people from Preston.
Sunday is more of the same. A couple of great features at The Hive in the afternoon – a Russian mafia film made in Barnt Green and a gangster slapstick comedy in Malvern.
Closing ceremony and awards for best judged short, feature and best film voted film by the public.
