Beeston, Nottingham’s Creative Town, announced today that it will be hosting its first Film Festival in January next year.
The festival will take place at the town’s Dagfa House School on January 24 and 25, and is currently seeking submissions from independent film-makers across a range of genres.
It is being organised by John Currie of Arrondissement Films and James Hall of Creative Beeston, an organisation that aims to help Beeston’s creatives and businesses develop, network and expand.
John Currie, Beeston Film Festival co-director, says,
“It will be wonderful to have a film festival on our doorstep; people in Beeston and the wider Nottingham area will be able to come along and enjoy the wonders of local and international film. As a film lover, I’m thrilled that we’re able to do this.”
James Hall, Creative Beeston and Beeston Film Festival co-director says,
“Beeston is a wonderful town with some fantastic events and talented people. We hope the Film Festival will add to this and help drive Beeston forward as a creative town.”
