Free Film Fest

Here is the programme for the inaugural Attic International Film Festival – it looks a real treat for film fans. The Attic Theatre is at Cawdor Hall, Newcastle Emlyn, SA38 9AF.

The organisers say:

“Over the weekend of 13-15 October, we will be showing work by over 50 Independent film makers based in 11 countries.

“The directors of the festival – Carole, Melanie, Pete and Glenn – are all fans of movies and have become particularly drawn to the medium of short films – often a more rewarding viewing experience than their larger, commercially produced counterparts.

“Short film today is most commonly encountered as a supplementary to music. We live in a time when the music video has truly come of age, bestriding our visual media with a sophisticated swagger. Though many short narrative films adopt an actual or near ‘real time’ frame, to relate a correspondingly brief story, many will negotiate themes which larger, commercial moviemakers take 90-120 minutes to express. Like the short story in literature, there is a particular skill set which comes into play when a film has to convey it’s story in less than 20 minutes.

“Please be advised that, though the films presented carry no certification, this festival is aimed at an adult – 16+ – audience. Some videos contain violence, sexual references and content and language unsuitable for unaccompanied young people.

“Each session is divided into screening blocks each with a running time of about 50 minutes. Each block may contain music video, documentary, animation and drama in order to change mood and alter the subject focus across the event. Sessions will be separated by intervals of about 15 minutes, during which refreshments will be available in the pop-up rehearsal studio cafe. The programme lists the title of the film, the director, country of origin and the running time.”
