Calling all independent film-makers!

Vintage Mobile Cinema

Vintage Mobile Cinema

We are looking for independent film-makers work at the moment, to screen aboard the Vintage Mobile Cinema as we tour different events across the country.
This is an opportunity for film-makers to have their work screened in a unique environment; a one-of-a-kind 1967 Mobile Cinema, the last survivor from a fleet of seven. The vehicle is completely unique, featuring a retro-futuristic perspex dome above the cab, and it causes
heads to turn whereever it goes!
We have been busy with the hugely successful Movie Bus Project (www.moviebus.org.uk) since the restoration was completed three months ago. The project, supported by the UK Film Council’s Digital Film Archive Fund and South West Screen, has seen the creation of eight different archive film compilations, which have been toured around North
Devon on board the bus. People have come in droves to the cinema, not only because of the films and their content, but because of the unique nature of the vehicle.
The Vintage Mobile Cinema will now be touring a series of festivals, screening a wide selection of material, and we are pleased to be able to help put together the cinema programming for the upcoming Aeon Festival (www.aeonfestival.com) on August 26th – 30th. We want to make this an opportunity for independent film-makers to get their work out there and seen in these unique surroundings.
We already have had offers from various artists and organisations to screen their work, such as David Salas’s award winning ‘Uncomfortable’ (http://web.mac.com/savedalas/iWeb/UNCOMFORTABLE/UNCOMFORTABLE.html) and work from Animated Exeter. With the Vintage Mobile Cinema’s unique ability to draw in a wide array of people, you never know who might be in the next audience for your film!
