The Apollo Cinema, Paignton, proudly presents an evening of short films on Sunday, November 13. Starting at 7.30pm (doors open at 7pm), The English Riviera Film Night is designed as a refreshing alternative to feature-length movies, while also serving as an exciting showcase for some of the best local filmmakers around.
Presented by Torquay-based director and musician John Tomkins (Like An Angel) and myself, film critic Sean Wilson, this event aims to demonstrate that one need not have millions of dollars at their disposal in order to come up with dynamic, provocative cinema.
Filmmakers Ashley Wing, Danny Cooke and Elliott G Montello will each be showcasing their work, and the evening includes a screening of Wing’s ambitious, science-fiction short, Fracture, recently released to much acclaim on the Sony Playstation 3 network.
Other films to be screened are Danny Cooke’s David A Smith: Sign Artist and Ray: A Life Underwater (on which he acted as editor and director of photography); Elliott Montello’s Sod’s Law; Cooke and Montello’s collaboration, Incendium; and Ashley Wing’s earlier films, Poppies and Robbing Peter.
Tickets are priced at just £4.25 and will be available to buy through the Quick Book option online at www.apollocinemas.com or at the Apollo Cinema boxoffice. The English Riviera Film Night: showcasing the best of new local film.
