Kent College and Pembury Film Festival

Kent College and Pembury Film Festival

A film festival with a musical theme will be taking place in Pembury from 15-18 October, together with the Big Shorts film competition.

The four day event will be held at a selection of venues in Pembury, including the theatre at Kent College, Pembury Primary School and Hospice in the Weald.

The programme has not been completely finalised yet, though will include about ten films, concerts and talks. The films all have a musical angle, and range from popular classics to some marvellous and compelling world cinema. Check out the website or contact the organisers for fuller details nearer the time.

The short film competition, Big Shorts, is open to any film-makers over 18 living in Kent, Surrey or Sussex, and is offering a £1500 prize. Films must be under 16 minutes, and the submission deadline is 15 September. Competition guidelines and an entry form are available from the website.

Also taking place is the Snapshoot Film Challenge for young teams of novice film-makers to make a film during the course of the festival. Further details are on the festival website.
