Kandu Arts "virtual" Reel Film Festival


Tired of streaming? Had enough of TV repeats? Missing the buzz of discovering new films and film makers and being stimulated by ideas and visual excitement? Well this weekend Kandu Arts has a treat in store for you…….

In Autumn 2019 Chippenham based, Kandu Arts as part of their long partnership with REEL cinemas, which has seen two of their feature films premiered at the Astoria in Chippenham, launched a brand new film festival bringing together emerging and established film makers from all over Wiltshire and the rest of the country, enabling them to have had a chance to showcase their work on the big screen at the Astoria Cinema - Chippenham.

With lockdown, and never wanting anyone to miss out the festival screenings are going ahead this weekend in a full “Virtual Festival “format on both Facebook and You Tube


This festival hosted by Kandu Arts and Reel Cinemas is the first in what will be an exciting annual event (in REEL cinemas when all clear is given) rolled out nationally as community film festivals.

Following introductions and Welcomes from Muhammad Faisal of REEL cinemas and Ed Deedigan of Kandu Arts the festival will go out live this weekend….,

Friday evening, the brand new films from Nicky Dew’s talented students at Wiltshire College will be shown. Kandu Arts has worked alongside Wiltshire College for many years, encouraging and giving additional opportunities to young film makers.

Saturday evening a range of thought provoking films from new and established fimlmakers and a brand new feature from Kandu Arts

Sunday evening more features and exciting local films.

Each film evening will culminate in a zoom Q and A session where viewers will be able to ask questions of some of the film makers.

The programme is below, looking forward to seeing you.
