‘Reel Somerset – Volume II’ is a new DVD compilation championing work made by artists, filmmakers and partner organisations living and working in the county of Somerset.
The disk is currently being distributed to over a hundred non-profit making exhibitors in the South West in the hope that film societies, independent cinemas and community groups will show a short film before a feature or programme an entire evening of shorts. Our aim is to wave the flag for creative talent in Somerset.
Reel Somerset - Volume II features animation, drama and documentary and includes the award winning animation ‘Once Upon a Time in the Shed’ by Barney Dixon alongside ‘Sun' by Jesse Lawrence, ‘The Fischer Enquiry’ by Jon Callow and “The Sound We See – A Somerset Symphony” with Echo Park Film Center, all of which have been shown at film festivals both nationally and internationally. Each short is introduced by the filmmaker.
If your community group, film society or organisation would like to hold a screening and receive a copy then email us or call 01278 433187. There is no cost to screen the content, however, a donation of £20 helps to cover production and postage costs and registers the recipient for volume three. We ask those who screen the films to complete a short online questionnaire giving us and the filmmakers valuable feedback. If you’re a filmmaker and would like to have a short film considered for inclusion on Volume III then drop us a line too!
