Film festival calling all businesses

Traders in Weston Super Mare are being asked to mix business with cinema by acting out their favourite movie for the Weston Film Festival.

Taking place between September 19 and 25 2011 Weston Film Festival aims to celebrate the silver screen by inviting local pubs, shops and all other businesses to hold a party or themed event depicting a famous film.

Each company that enters can chose to interpret any film for their themed day and each entrant will need to produce a short – maximum three minutes – video of their event which will be judged at the Weston Film Fesitval awards night, with prizes being handed out to the themed event judged the most engaging and true to the original film.

Tavern Inn the Town, The Commodore Hotel and The Parish Pump are amongst those already signed up to the event and their chosen films are Chicago, Jailhouse Rock and The Rocky Horror Movie Show respectively.

A full programme of events and prizes will be posted shortly and it costs £20 to enter the event. For more information or to place an entry please call Terry Gilbert on 01934 418118.
