BBC Film 2014 critic Danny Leigh helped to shape the event which opened with a gala of innovative films chosen by audiences at the Vue Cinema, Eastleigh.

Other events included a screening of George A. Romero’s horror classic Dawn of the Dead at the Swan Shopping Centre, complete with brain hungry zombies, the Coen Brothers’ cult classic The Big Lebowski in Eastleigh’s Hollywood Lanes’ equivalent AMF Bowling alongside a host of opportunities to enjoy films as you have never seen them before.

The Festival also hosted an Industry Day on 25th September featuring opportunities for aspiring filmmakers to meet the experts, ask questions and learn how to break into the business.

As part of the Festival we also ran a short film competition in association with the European-funded Recreate project, welcoming submissions from the UK and France.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the 2015 Festival.

Eastleigh Film Festival is part of the Recreate programme, a cross-border initiative of 11 cities and urban areas from northern France and the south and east coast of England of which Eastleigh is a leading partner.

Part of the ongoing Interreg IVA  (Channel) France-England programme, Recreate aims to bring empty commercial and cultural properties back to life by transforming them into business clusters for creative enterprises and artists, including new start-up companies.
