Organisers of the festival, which was launched last summer, say the February event will not include screenings – giving film makers a chance to make more films before the next major showcase event in June – but will be a chance for those in the local film community to talk about collaborating on projects.
Speakers at the event will include David John Evans of Zoom and Trusty Sidekick Productions, SJ Evans who directed low budget horror movie Dead of the Nite, and John Shackleton, of We Are Monsters Movie, which is being financed through a crowd funding initiative.
Luke Andrews of the Bafta Cymru-nominated Edna’s Bench will also be speaking, and several will be there to offer opportunities to the local film community including Skillset Academi Plus, 3VTV, and It’s My Shout.
Cardiff Mini Film Festival director, Jody Tozer, said: “The Cardiff Mini Film Festival is not only a chance for no-budget film makers to come together and screen their work, it is a chance to gain some recognition and form links with potential film collaborators.
“There will be a mix of people who want to collaborate on film at the event, such as actors, musicians and everyone in between that wants to be part of film. This is not just a film festival, it is a community coming together to create something amazing”.
The event will be held at 10 Feet Tall on Church Street on February 3 from 6.30pm.
