38th Annual Halls Gap Film Festival (2017)

CANCELED

IT IS WITH A HEAVY HEART THAT I HAVE TO ANNOUNCE THAT THIS YEARS FESTIVAL WILL NOT GO AHEAD.

DESPITE THE DEDICATION OF A VALIANT FEW IT IS SIMPLY NOT POSSIBLE PHYSICALLY OR FINANCIALLY TO SUCCESSFULLY DELIVER A QUALITY PROGRAM WITHOUT LOCAL SUPPORT.

I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL THOSE WHO ATTENDED THE EVENT IN THE PAST,  AS WELL AS THOSE BUSINESSES THAT DID SUPPORT US, THANK YOU ALL!

THERE ARE THREE PEOPLE WHO DESERVE A VERY SPECIAL MENTION, THESE THREE HAVE VOLUNTARILY DEVOTED A HUGE AMOUNT OF TIME AND ENERGY SINCE I BECAME THE FESTIVAL DIRECTOR IN 2012.

OUR DEDICATED AND TALENTED PROJECTIONIST

TIM SHERWOOD

 HIS ABLE ASSISTANT

NEIL THOMAS

AND THE LADY WHO SUPPORTED, ENCOURAGED AND FED US

GABRIEL SHERWOOD.

MY SINCERE AND HEARTFELT THANKS TO YOU ALL!

with much sadness

James Skene – Festival Director
