This is now getting very exciting! The judges have watched the Longlisted films and have now given us their Shortlists.
Many thanks to Gavin Irvine, Juliet Aubrey and Dan Weaver for all their hard work.
All of these shortlisted films will be shown in the main auditorium at Camberley Theatre on Thursday 7 March from 8 – 10pm. The winners will be announced and presented with their awards. Unfortunately Juliet Aubrey is no longer able to make the event as she is starring in the Arthur Miller play ‘The Last Yankee’ at the Bolton Octagon where the run has been extended. She generously gave her time to help her fellow judges and said she was ‘blown away’ by the standard of film making on offer.
In her place, to present the award for the Over All Tri County Winner, we are honoured to welcome, the Mayor of Surrey Heath, Cllr Dan Adams.
Also presenting prizes on Thursday evening, will be the founder of the New Forrest Film Festival, Gary Wronecki, plus White Elephant judges Co founder and Creative Director of Fudge Animation Dan Weaver, and multi award winning writer, director, Gavin Irvine.
There are still a few spaces available if you would like to attend on Thursday, either for the masterclass, panel discussion or the awards themselves. Bill’s will be providing free finger food between 6 – 8pm and the bar will be open.
