Movie Makers – Featuring the City of Colchester’s Independent Short Film Festival

By Rodney Appleyard

On the Movie Makers show this Monday, 30 May, at 6.00pm, we feature Nick Pelas, the organiser of the Colchester’s Independent Short Film Festival, and Tim Young, who is soon to be the Mayor of Colchester, talking about how successful the festival was.

You can also listen (below) to Nick Pelas talking previously about the competition, which took place at the Curzon cinema in Colchester. He speaks about what kind of submissions can be made and describes the entertainment the audience can expect at the festival.

We also interviewed filmmaker Lucy Charlesworth a few weeks ago about her experiences on a BFI filmmaking course based at Signals Media in Colchester, which has led to her working on a blockbuster movie at Pinewood Studios.

The show was broadcast on Colne Radio. Listen to the recordings belows:

Previous shows have included interviews with the stars of the new film Morris Men, produced by filmmaker DB Morgan:
