During the autumn, there was  a very positive response from film makers and venues keen to take part. For 2024 people can expect a great range of stories on screen s from around the world: from a documentary about Marc Bolan and   award winning recent dramas   to films by local directors,  brand new fantasy and films about farming and the landscape.

Three workshops are on the programme, each aimed at a different age group, offering  people the  chance to develop their film making skills. The films entered in the challenge will be on the big screen in 90 Second Stroud at Lansdown Hall on Saturday 16th March.

The full programme will be announced at the publicity launch in mid  January when the website will go live and people can expect to see the print brochure  and posters around the town.
