Two awards have been made to local film makers this year!
One to Amber Bardell, for a documentary short entitled "Art As Catharsis". Amber is a graduate of Godalming College and now studying for a degree at the University of Westminster. The film has shot on locations in and around Godalming, including the Meath and a location shoot in Paris.
The other is to a GFS member, Mark Hammett. He completed a short drama entitled "Hard Copy". This has also been shot on locations in and around Godalming and Guildford.
Both films have been screened to our members in January 2020 and were warmly received!
We aim to promote the understanding and enjoyment of the art of classic and contemporary film of all genres and, as such, enhance the arts and cultural provision of the community. This is currently achieved through screenings, talks and discussion. The Society seeks to support film-making and other film based initiatives by new entrants to the field of film production and engagement. Providing grants to support such projects is a further way for the Society to achieve this in collaboration with local groups for mutual benefit.
The GFS Awards programme is now closed. Applications for next season will be accepted later in the year, with a submission deadline of 31 December 2020.
