WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

Feeling creative and looking for something to do over the Witsun bank holiday? Screen South are running a free 72hr film challenge.

You don’t have to have ever made a film before; as long as you have an idea you can apply. Films can be shot on anything from a mobile phone to a high end camera. We are looking for creativity and stories about the Romney Marsh, fictional or real.

All films entered will be shown at a free screening at the Old School in New Romney on Saturday 8th June between 2pm – 5pm. A panel of judges will select the best three films, who will be awarded by BBC Radio Kent’s Dominic King at a prize giving ceremony at the Old School in New Romney starting at 6pm.
