Love film? Discover The English Riviera Film Festival
What better way to get the inside track on the English Riviera Film Festival than to speak to Festival Director John Tomkins. There’s a jam-packed programme from the 27 October to 9 November; that’s two whole weeks worth of all things film.
Inspired by the Museum of The Moving Image and a career in filmmaking, Festival Director John Tomkins has created the fourth English Riviera Film Festival with film makers, actors and punters in mind. John has cunningly brought together different parts of the film industry from across the world to create a unique experience on the Bay’s doorstep.
What’s on our must-see list? Well, there’s the long-awaited full screening of Ashley Thorpe’s acclaimed live action and animation feature Borley Rectory starring Reece Shearsmith and Julian Sands. Or how about a world premiere of a film from Los Angeles based film director Ra Dreyfus, produced working with South Devon College film students. There’s also writer Chris Robillard’s War Stories; interviews with local heroes on their greatest escapades during the Second World War, as featured on the BBC and in national press.
Not only will there be screenings, film makers from across the world will also gather at the Palace Theatre Paignton for a true celebration of cinema with award gongs made by Cockington Court’s OurGlass . This years award nominees across Best Film, Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress include Hymn of Hate, Session No. 78, Like Glass, The Grind Message, Flies, Catastrophe, Eli, Foxes, Samsara and Fort Box. To experience screenings and the awards ceremony for yourself, get down to the Palace Theatre on Saturday 27 October. Tickets from JUST £6.81… literally less than the price of one cinema ticket!
