Film festival organiser wants cinema in Firstsite
ORGANISERS of the Colchester Film Festival want to increase the number of cinema showings at Firstsite.
Steve Dorrington and Tristan Syrett hosted the First ever, three-day festival from October 5.
Hundreds of people turned up to the showings proving that there is a need for more arthouse films in the town.
Mr Dorrington, said that Firstsite, which already hosts regular movies, would be an ideal place for a permanent movie theatre.
Speaking at the festival, he added: “Films like The Artist are only shown when they get really big.
“I would like to get more films shown here and am trying to get Picturehouse on board.”
Colchester Film Festival featured scores of cinematic vignettes, including claymation short, Head Over Heels, by director Tim Reckart.
