30th October International Young People’s Short Film Festival
Creating Bridport’s first international youth film festival at The Electric Palace with workshops including Robert Golden and film screenings with short films from the Changing the Story project Izazov! and others.
The Forum Theatre and other work continues at the Town Hall. Forum Theatre led by River Associate Trained Artist with Cardboard Citizens.
In the evening we have a screening of Don’t be Nice with Q and A as part of the Spoken Word workshops led by Shaniqua Benjamin. There will be a donation of £5 to help cover costs including popcorn. This is a massive gift to TCFT by the film makers as the film has only been shown in the UK at Rich Mix. It is a multi award winner in the USA and a complete inspiration.

The creative work continues.
