Reasons to be cheerful - TTT film festival
This weekend, local film enthusiasts and ‘Transitioners’ alike will be able to enjoy the first Transition Film Festival in Totnes. Centred at the Civic Hall, there will be a series of films and workshops from Friday November 14th through to Sunday 16th November. The programme will be centred around the key Transition themes, i.e. climate change, local economies and declining resources with upbeat look at solution-based topics including food, economy and community spirit which will be reflected in the film choices.
The team that has brought together TTT Film Nights over the past five years, has developed a wide and very mixed audience and generated a lot of understanding of the kind of films that intrigue and engage people. Films selected for screening at the Film Nights have generally been further to suggestions and voting of Film Club members; over the past eighteen months the films shown have reflected the desire for upbeat and solution-based films. The monthly post-film discussions have been very revealing about how people respond to the strong messages and visual images in films and documentaries; views that are reflected in the choice of films for the forthcoming festival.
There is a diverse line-up of films to attract all ages and all levels of understanding of what Transition is about. The programme will include hands-on Workshops with local Film Makers, Children’s Matinees and film discussions with Film Directors.
The full programme, ticket sales and up to date information about the Film Festival are now available on the dedicated website at transitionfilmfestival.org.uk
The Festival is also looking for volunteers to help out over the weekend, with anything from baking cake, to being an usher, to hosting a visiting director. Volunteers will receive free tickets for a session, a day or the whole weekend, depending on the time offered.
