The Whitley Bay Film Festival 2010 will celebrate great cinema, in great locations in Whitley Bay
A unique beach side screening of Steven Spielberg’s classic, 1975 thriller “Jaws” as well as an exhibition of memorabilia from the movie, are just two of the highlights of the 2010, Whitley Bay Film Festival, running from 21-27 August.
The action takes place at the Trojan rooms and a variety of indoor and outdoor venues across the town. Featuring local audiovisual archive, screenings of cutting edge features, shorts, community and regional films, a packed daytime and evening programme will enable attendees to enjoy and learn more about the broad spectrum of film.
Visitors will also be able to attend to series of workshops designed to offer budding filmmakers expert advice and an environment in which they can screen their work to a wider audience.
Whitley Bay residents will be asked to vote for their favourite film with a strong 1970’s theme running throughout the festival. Where possible, the most popular film will be screened at the festival.
The Whitley Bay Film Festival 2010 is designed and delivered by Primate Productions and funded by Northern Film & Media and North Tyneside Council. The Trojan Rooms are the festival’s venue partner, offering attendees the ideal environment to enjoy informal cabaret style film entertainment.
Tickets will go on sale at the end of July 2010.
