WW1 Cornish Tommies season – your chance to host a film in your community

posted in: Cornish Tommies, Film programming | 0

To mark the centenary of the Armistice and dedicated in remembrance to those who fell in World War One, C Fylm are supporting a season of WWI themed films, including our own new short film, Cornish Tommies.

These films will be available to screen from October 2018 – May 2019, and we are asking all venues, schools and community groups in Cornwall if they would like to get involved!

Created by Falmouth University students, Cornish Tommies tells the story of an 18 year old Cornish miner called up in 1917. He served in the trenches in the last year of the war where he was severely injured. Evacuated to Blighty, he was awarded the DCM (Distinguished Conduct Medal) and settled back in his village where he was a noted singer in the village choir.

With support from Film Hub SW and Cornish Mining World Heritage, we are offering these films to venues in Cornwall and we’d like you to take part.

When you book a film, you will benefit from assistance with license costs, marketing and screening equipment, as well as short films to complement each feature film. Browse the line up below or downlad the Cornish Tommies film menu here. To find out more, or to book your films by Wednesday 22nd August, please email imogen@creativekernow.org.uk or call 01209 312 500.
