Regular readers will know the shindig lets directors, actors, crew, or anybody interested in film to show their flicks, pitch their ideas, put out calls for cast and crew, and meet other like-minded people in a friendly and informal atmosphere.
Ashley said: “We’re really looking forward to the first CINE of 2011. We have a fantastic and eclectic line-up of short films, but where I feel we have really pushed forward is with our guest speakers.
“Paddy Robinson Griffin is a producer with a wealth of knowledge. He will be talking about his experience in the industry and taking any questions filmmakers may have about this role.
“Our second guest is Hannah Vincent from itzon.tv who will be talking about online distribution and how she can help promote your movie.”
But it’s not just about the guest speakers. There will be screenings of Mr Fox by Max Swinton, Cockington Glass by Danny Cooke, Detour by Kodjo Akeseh Tsakpo, and Devon by Realm Pictures – plus mucho hobnobbing with the region’s filmmaking elite.
Ashley explained: “April’s event will be CINE’s seventh birthday. We hope to continue developing the event so it inspires and helps emerging talent, but more importantly, serves as a network hub in a relaxed, friendly environment.
“Over the months it’s been great to see collaborations forged and friendships grow, where at the end of the day if you have nothing to screen you can enjoy a cold beer in the bar or catch a flick and get the latest news on what’s happening on the filmmaking scene.
“We intend to push the event further with some ideas of a festival but we’ll see how it goes. We’re always looking for guest speakers and short films to screen. If you have a project in the pipeline, we’d be more than happy to hear about it.”
