2013 Dustbin Film Festival of Vintage Film to be held in Horton this weekend
A FILM festival which has traditionally been held in Chipping Sodbury for years is moving back to its Horton roots.
The annual Dustbin Film Festival of Vintage Film will this year take place at Horton Village Hall this Saturday, February 23 (10am-6pm).
The show, held every February, will show rare and discarded 16mm reels of film on subjects ranging from animals and agriculture to inland waterways, cartoons and comedy.
Organiser Jim Wilkie said: "Although in alphabetical listings Chipping Sodbury comes close to Cannes in the list, the atmosphere at the Dustbin Film Festival of Vintage Film is very different.
"The audience are considerably less glamorous and they are more likely to get excited by something with a fuel tank than a film star.
"Taking feedback from the audience is encouraged since most of them also share an interest in old machinery and local history, the audience can prove very knowledgeable."
He said the films could be highly useful for research purposes and the festival provided an opportunity to show them to a wider audience.
"If you have a specialised interest, then such films represent an invaluable resource for research or to share with others with your particular interest," said Mr Wilkie.
"The best way to enjoy these films in the company of a knowledgeable audience. After all, that is how they were intended to be seen."
