Hatherleigh Film Festival Update
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

May 27, 2009: Hatherleigh Film Festival Local amateur film makers showed off their work at the Hatherleigh Film Festival held on 23rd May during the Hatherleigh Arts Festival. The programme which lasted more than 2 hours included films on a wide range of subjects. There was comedy, drama, history, nature, and of course aspects of Hatherleigh. The shortest lasted just under a minute and the longest was just over 10 minutes. There were 25 contributors including one from Bideford College and 11 children. Some contributors showed more than one film. The standard of the films was exceptionally high even though many of the participants were first time film makers. The audience enjoyed the festival. Two, out of town independent judges considered "The Mail" submitted by Dan Rose as the best film with 28 points out of a possible 40, and "Carpe Diem" submitted by Tanya Kaczanow as the runner up with 24 points out of 40. Several films scored just below 24 points. Dan will be receiving a cheque for £25 and Tanya will be receiving a cheque for £15. These are only token prizes as entrance to the film festival was free and the event was not sponsored. If we have another film festival then it will be better funded. In the children's group the judges considered "Lego Power Miners" by Eli Greenhill (aged 12) and Jacob Tame (aged 13) as the best film and "Carnival Stickies" by Ben, Michelle and Emma Brock as the runner up.
