Recreating the Golden Age of Cinemagoing

To give you a flavour of last year’s gala, take a look at this lovely video made by UWE BA (Hons) Filmmaking students who volunteered at the festival. It gives a real sense of the atmosphere: recreating the golden age of cinemagoing; with the Hippodrome staff in vintage ushers uniforms and everybody dressed to the nines. There’s a cameo from Festival Producers, Charlotte Crofts and Anna Farthing on the red carpet and one of the festival goers – the lady in the red coat towards the end – had even met Cary Grant as a young woman.
