Medway Visions Film Festival – 7th to 12th September 2013

medway visions logo

A new film festival is taking place in Medway between the 7th and 12th September.

Medway Visions will promote independent filmmaking with a big emphasis placed on local upcoming filmmakers who have produced a short film or music video that needs to be seen!

The film festival is a new venture by Rochester filmmaker Mr Young, himself a indie filmmaker who has seen his short films and his debut feature film screened  at festivals around the world and broadcast on television.

The festival, however, takes a unique collaborative approach with a whole host of Medway arts providers taking control of a screening or series of screenings:

Medway Eyes – Music Videos

Creatabot – Independent features and short animated films

Rochester Film Society – Independent features

Sun Pier House – Short films and guest directors

TEA Medway – Experimental film

To enter your short film please email mryoung@themoontheeye.co.uk
