New Midlands Film Festival Hopes to Leave you Feeling Good


Midlands Movies Mike introduces a brand new film festival for the region that is looking for submissions from talented filmmakers for their first ever event.


West Midlands-based Sutton Coldfield Movie Makers are about to launch their first ever ‘Film Fest’ and are encouraging filmmakers from the area to get involved.


They are hoping the region’s talent will submit films (no longer than five minutes) on the theme of ‘Feel Good’. Films will be screened at a special event at Highbury Theatre Centre on the big screen, at 2pm on Sunday 16th July.


Seeing the event as a celebration of local film, it will also be an opportunity for people to meet other filmmakers informally, as well as allowing film makers to invite friends and family to see their films in a cinema setting.


Committee member Debbie Daniels explains, “We originally had the idea as Sutton Coldfield Movie Makers make films mainly for competitions and we wanted an event that was celebratory in nature”.


“We will have films from our club, and hopefully other clubs, but we are very keen to involve any lone filmmakers out there, or young people who are making films, for example”, Debbie adds.


Tickets will be available to the general public for just £2 and with their film theme of ‘Feel Good’, Debbie and her team are aiming for their audiences to leave very much ‘feeling good’.


For details check out the organisation at www.suttoncoldfieldmoviemakers.org.uk where there is also a link to more information about Film Fest.


In their first year they are hoping to share this event out to a wider audience of movie makers and it complements the already exciting calendar of film festivals in the Midlands.
