Films In The City Event Round Up

The October Non-Multiplex Cinema Films in The City Event: “Want to get your films into festivals? Here’s How!” was a great success and everyone had a fun and informative night!

Some us even got to extend the fun getting stuck in a malfunctioning lift with bags of booze at the end of the night – all in all, good times!

The panel discussion with our in-house host Ruth Doyle, Producer; Rebekah Smith, Film Festival Doctor; Philip Ilson, London Short Film Festival and Ross Domoney, Director of “The High Price of Gold” was well received by the audience and a big thank you to the guests for sharing their time and experiences with everyone. “The High Price of Gold” is currently doing really well on the festival circuit.

Thank you to all the filmmakers who submitted their short films and to everyone who had their films screened on the night! The short film ‘audience favourite’ award went to Sheila Menon and Alexander Munro, the Directors for “No Way Out”. They won a bottle of wine and 2 tickets to a Royal Shakespeare Company production. Congrats & Enjoy!
