We have some fantastic news today, our very own Karen Woodham has an amazing website called Blazing Minds, the multi-award winning website has become a top source for film reviews and more since starting in 2008, now Blazing Minds are very pleased to announce their partnership with the upcoming Wirksworth 3 Minute Film Festival.
Karen said, "It such an honour to be able to support the film festival in its first year, which will showcase films of 3 minutes and under, the Wirksworth Film Festival will take place from the 15-16th of September as part of the International Wirksworth Arts Festival. Blazing Minds has been going strong since late 2008 and over the last few years it's been growing even more with the awards that it has one and the entertainment industry people that support the site."
Blazing Minds will be bringing their knowledge of film and social media to supporting the film festival, by promoting the event to their huge following on the various social media accounts along with their award-winning website, that is probably one of the biggest and most read North Wales based websites.
The Film Festival is a way to celebrate the love of shorts films from around the world, the films will be shown at various locations across the town of Wirksworth.
The team behind the Wirksworth Film Festival said, "Part of the philosophy of the festival is to encourage younger filmmakers to submit their work, hence the fact we offer free entry for all under 25’s. As part of the festival, we have already secured a 20th anniversary showing of the Blair Witch Project, which is being introduced in a one-off video by the writer and director Dan Myrick."
The Wirksworth 3 Minute Film Festival is aimed at young filmmakers aged under 18 years of age, or aged 18-25 we want to hear from you! (Early bird entries, ends May 31st) East Midlands Filmmakers receive free entry to the festival.
