Chance to discover new film producers
Film enthusiasts can get their fix of new, independent and undiscovered talent from around the world as the Exit 6 Film Festival returns to Basingstoke on Saturday 29th September.
Exit 6 is an all-day short film festival, which is in its third year in Basingstoke. It brings 44 short films by producers from around the world to Hampshire audiences. The festival will take place at multiple locations throughout Basingstoke including The Vue Cinema in Festival Square, The Forge in The Anvil and The Red Lion Hotel at the Top of the Town with screenings during the day and throughout the evening.
The event is supported by Basingstoke Together, the face of the Basingstoke Business Improvement District (BID), and by Ark Cancer Centre Charity, which is raising funds to support a cancer treatment centre which is to be built by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in north Hampshire.
Mark Brennan, Exit 6 Festival Director, said: “The Exit 6 film festival provides a great platform for filmmakers to introduce their content to new audiences as well as gain valuable industry insight. It is also a great opportunity to celebrate the hard work and dedication which went into creating their short films in the first place.
“We hope visitors to the festival will be inspired and moved by the diverse and eclectic range of content which is on offer, meet and greet the filmmakers themselves and, ultimately, enjoy some brilliant short films.”
The films being screened include the ‘Judge’s Six’ — which are the six films in competition for the Best Film Award. The winner will be chosen by TV and film actor Burn Gorman, from the BBC’s Torchwood.
