On Thursday 17th November we will be showing all the completed 18 films in this year's contest and awarding prizes to those considered by our panel of judges to be the best in each of the 8 categories..
Our judges are Rebecca Marshall, film-maker and co-founder of The Electric Palace Cinema and Shot By The Sea, Hastings' Annual Festival of Film and Moving Image, Hastings, Lee Cornes, television writer, actor and stand-up comedian and one of only two actors outside the core Blackadder cast to have appeared in 3 of the legendary show's seasons; Archie Laughlan, Bafta-winning documentary film-maker renowned for his nine-years-in-the-making documentary about Hastings Pier, Re: A Pier; Trix Worrell, the most successful black television writer of his generation, best-known for his work on For Queen and Country (1988), Desmond, (1989) and as writer, director and composer for What You Lookin' At (1993), and Keith Rodway,
musician and film-maker whose documentary Becoming Penny was screened at
Trash Cannes in 2012, whose narrative short The Mariner's Tale was screened at
Trash Cannes in 2014, and who is Creative Director of Trash Cannes and
Trash'd New Wave festivals.
The judges will have no knowledge of the films prior to a private screening,
where they will assess the films and assign awards to them in 8 categories:
Best Film (the Leigh Dyer Award), Best Screenplay, Best Soundtrack,
Best Actor, Best Use of Prop, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography and
Best Special Effects (The Trevor Award). The winner of Best Film will be
presented with the Leigh Dyer award, which is inscribed with the previous
years' winners' names, theirs to keep for the coming year, until the next
Film Challenge in 2017, when it will pass on to the next winner.
The award ceremony will take place at the Kino Teatr from 6.30 on
Thursday November 17th, with special projections by visual effects
artist Adam Seeley being shown inside the foyer, some of which will be
visible from outside the venue.
Tickets are £4.00, and can be booked online now via the Kino's website.
