Back in October, before we had a website, we entered our second film, Sprite, into the Film Northants Film Festival. The festival has some rules that are designed to help showcase the filmmaking talent in the county, and encourage the Northants population to get involved in creative endeavours. For instance, all films eligible for the awards have to be made within Northamptonshire's borders and preferably with Northants talent. And there's quite a bit of it if the films on show are anything to go by.
There are two main awards for the films. The Public Vote and Judges Choice. Obviously it would be ace to be recognised in both, as happened to Joe Burden's film, Beneath The Wormwood Trees, did last year (2014), but recognition in either was our goal. Although we posted on Facebook and Twitter, there were a couple of films that we thought may have a bigger following, so it was a nice surprise to not only be recognised here, but to actually win.
We'll be making another short film for entry into this unique festival, later in 2016. After, of course, The Flock.
