Eastbourne Moviemakers Showcase

If you felt inspired by my post a couple of days ago about Robin Romei's planned music video to promote Eastbourne, you might be interested in an event being put on at the Under Ground Theatre in a fortnight's time. The Eastbourne Moviemakers group will be screening a variety of their films over a two hour period starting at 15:00, and starting again at 19:30 for the after-work crowd.

Eastbourne Moviemakers were formerly the Eastbourne and District Camcorder Club although they invite membership from a wider area including Bexhill, Hastings, St Leonards, Hailsham, Heathfield and Seaford. They meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month, usually at St Luke's Parish Church in Stone Cross at 19:45. Potential new members are welcome to go along for a few visits before committing to join and the Showcase will be a great chance to meet people in the existing group and have a chat. Films that will be screened at the Under Ground include a short black comedy called ‘Cleaning up the Parish’ and a documentary about when the Olympic Torch came to Eastbourne in 2012, ‘A Day to Remember’. While reading up on the Eastbourne Moviemakers website, I realised that I have already seen a film by two of their members, Alan Tutt and Harry Lederman, and very good it was too. Their Jack And The Beanstalk pantomime documentary followed the making of the Eastbourne Pantomime for eight months and was shown to an audience of Devonshire Park Theatre Friends at the Winter Garden in 2011. Apparently it was also then condensed into a 20 minute film which won Best Documentary at the SERIAC Festival.

Under Ground Theatre, Wed 22nd May, 15:00 and 19:30.
Free admission although donations would be appreciated.
