Some of the brightest lights in the South West film scene are getting together at the Exeter Phoenix for a screening and networking event on Saturday, June 26.
The programme for the Cottage Industry Network Event (CINE) has been released and features some award-winning gems.
Along with the screenings there will be Q&As with filmmakers to share the knowledge and experience of the filmmaking process throughout the community. It’s a perfect opportunity for filmmakers of all levels to get together, and it’s also a chance for film lovers to catch up with some of the top talent in the region.
Included in the line up are: The Hairy Hands, by Ashley Thorpe, Darren Jones’ documentary John Tomkins: A Creative Journey, Abridged by Martin Lejeune, The Garden of Terrible Delights by Alex White, Nenikekamen (We are victorious) by Realm Pictures, Burn by Patrick Kiely, Embrace Life by Dan Cox and Simon Le Boggit’s Bombastic Mind by Mental Health.
The event is free, but you will be asked for donations for D+CFilm.
Ashley Wing, of Cottage Industry Films, told D+CFilm: “We know how hard it is to get films off the ground, and we want to promote the region as well as help aspiring talent get the start they need, but also provide a forum for established filmmakers to showcase their films and network.”
The filmmaking and networking fun takes place in the Black Box Room at the Exeter Phoenix on Saturday, June 26 from 2pm to 4pm, continuing in the bar.
