More time for film fans to cre­ate fes­ti­val en­tries

Macclesfield Express - - WHAT’S ON -

OR­GAN­IS­ERS of the town’s first-ever short film fes­ti­val have ex­tended the dead­line for en­tries.

SilkFest In­de­pen­dent Film Fes­ti­val aims to gives lo­cal ac­tors, writ­ers and direc­tors the op­por­tu­nity to show­case their tal­ent.

It is run­ning a com­pe­ti­tion to find the 12 best short films which will all be screened at a spe­cial event at Mac­cles­field town hall on Satur­day Au­gust 13.

The over­all win­ner will be de­cided on the night.

Each film has to be orig­i­nal seven-minute film, in­spired by the theme: home.

The fes­ti­val has been or­gan­ised by film-lover Laura Gen­ders, who lives in the town cen­tre.

She said: “The en­tries we have had so far il­lus­trate how much tal­ent there is in Mac­cles­field and in the North West. We would like more peo­ple to give it a go and try and make their own film.

“If there’s one thing Barn­aby has shown is that there is amaz­ing cre­ative tal­ent out there. We want to see that tal­ent en­ter the fes­ti­val.”

Tick­ets are now on sale for a gala, black-tie event priced at £15 each from

The fes­ti­val is in aid of Echoes, the child­hood be­reave­ment ser­vice at East Cheshire Hospice.
