Top British film director, David Yates, is supporting Chorleywood Film Festival’s Young Film-maker’s (YF-m) Competition and is providing a prize for the winners.
Keith Frost, Chair of the Film Club explained, “David is probably best known as director of the final four films in the Harry Potter series, as well as the recent prequel – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Next summer the competition’s three age-group winners will be invited to Abbey Road Studios to witness first hand, the musical scoring of Fantastic Beasts 2 which is being released later next year.”
“We’re absolutely delighted by David’s generous support for this year’s Young Film-makers Competition” said Sheryl Shurville from Chorleywood Bookshop, the Film Festival’s co-producers, said, “Going to Abbey Road studios and attending the session will be a unique experience and is a prize definitely worth winning!”
Competition entries are due in by Friday 19 January 2018 – for full details please visit Chorleywood Film Club’s website (www.cwfilmclub.org).
Meanwhile, the Club’s next film is the inspirational, feel-good movie Hidden Figures (PG). It tells the true story of a group of female African-American mathematicians working at NASA in the early days of the space race who, dealing with the racism and sexism of the times, were absolutely pivotal in getting America’s first astronaut, John Glenn into – and back from – space.
Hidden Figures (PG) Fri 17 Nov, Memorial Hall, 8pm Doors 7.30 pm. Tickets in adv from CW Bookshop, at www.cwfilmclub.org or on door if available.
