Be a part of festival’s promotional film

Filming of a cinema trailer for the 2017 Belper Arts Festival will take place in the town centre on January 22 at 9.30am.

George Gunby, Belper Arts Festival co-ordinator, said: “The plan is to have small groups of artists, singers, dancers and performers at points along the street. These groups will be visited by a character who will make her away down the street.

“It would be great if people could come along in fancy dress or in costume. We expect to have filming complete by 11am. Everyone who takes part will be given a copy of the DVD,” he added.

The meeting point is in the Memorial Gardens in King Street and everyone is welcome to take part. Artists, singers, dancers, actors and performers of all kinds will all be featured. Children and local groups are especially welcome.

Louis Vella of Studio 3 Cine will be behind the camera and the finished trailer will be shown at the Ritz Cinema in Belper as well as on YouTube and other social media.
