Adam King Short Films
As “Starless Dreams” is only 76 minutes long, Chelmsford Film Club are taking the opportunity to show 2 films by a young local film maker, Adam King. Both films are only 2-3 minutes long and we hope Adam will be here to introduce both films. Though short, both films are very imaginative and we hope you will enjoy!
Our last presentation ‘I Am Not Your Negro’
Once again, our sincere apologies for not being able to show the intended film “Starless Dreams” (which has yet to get a formal UK release, though it was shown at last year’s London Film Festival). The international distributors would not grant us a license to screen it. There were 32 response slips returned after the showing of this film the breakdown from these slips were as follows:
- ‘Excellent’: 25 votes
- ‘Very Good’: 3 votes
- ‘Good’: 4 votes
- ‘Satisfactory’: 0 vote
- ‘Poor’: 0 vote
If you want to add further comments on this film, you are welcome to do so by joining in on our “I Am Not Your Negro” discussion forum.
We a trialling a redesigned version of the Response Slips which can be simply torn to indicate your opinion rather than requiring a pen or pencil to tick a box. As much as we enjoy reading people’s comments, the rating provides an indication of how our audience rate out film selection. Even if you have no comment to make, we urge people to return the slips on the way out. Thank you.
