There are lots of different ways to get involved with Northampton Film Festival 2021 – firstly, come to some of our online events – book tickets on our virtual festival page here looking at the Schedule for workshops etc and the Virtual Festival for films (some are even free!), keep checking in on The Operator on this page and sign up to our mailing list here
The Operator short film
As part of NFF 2021 we’re producing a short film from Writer/Director Matt Riley (more usually found as a DP) and starring Amy De Bhrun (Line of Duty, Vikings). We know a lot of local people have missed out on film set experience this year due to the pandemic so we thought we’d bring you the next best thing – virtual set experience! We will be live streaming the prelight and filming of The Operator and sharing the Pre-Production process with you here (like our latest livestream production meeting!) and through Q&As, interviews and all that good stuff. But most importantly we want to get you involved – helping us source locations and all sorts – so whatever your interest, please drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and keep an eye on our blog for all the latest news.
Festival Cocktail List!
We have sponsorship opportunities available for the 2021 festival. In 2019 we had 739 admissions across 4 venues (49% being new to the venues) as well as working with well over a hundred local young people and volunteers in the run up. 95% of people said they’d visit again and 97% rated the experience as Good or Very Good. “Fantastic, well organised. Enjoyable and all together great fun.” “Really engaging and bringing film to light with how much goes into it.” “Well done to all involved and for raising the profile of Northants.” We featured numerous times on BBC Radio Northampton as well as appearing on BBC Look East, many online articles from the Chronicle to Nenequirer to the BBC. In 2019 we worked with the Northampton Filmhouse, Panavision, the University of Northampton, CARRIER-media, the Grosvenor Centre, Northampton Borough Council, Northamptonshire Community Foundation and Film Hub Midlands through funds from the National Lottery amongst many others. Film Hub Midlands support people to watch, show, and make films in the Midlands. For more information contact email@example.com or call 07930 646721.
