10th October 2015 - 17th October 2015

Corby Big Film Week is coming soon to a screen near you!

Corby’s first week long film festival will take place from 10th – 17th October and celebrates both a bright future with our new cinema alongside a rich history of ‘Corby on Film’.

With personal appearances including a 7-Oscar winning producer and Marilyn Monroe’s script supervisor, this first Corby Big Film Week festival offers YOU the opportunity to engage with ‘The Art of Cinema’; from writing and directing, to acting and composing, encompassing the crafts of producing, cinematography, sound and lighting.

Participating venues across Corby include The Savoy cinema, The Core at Corby Cube, Corby East Midlands International Pool, Corby Library and The Rooftop Gallery and Workshops. James Ashworth VC Square outside the Corby Cube will become a live film set with movie characters from Frozen to Star Wars!

As Oscar winning producer Lord Puttnam reminds us “Cinema began as a sideshow at a funfair and the FUN part of that should never be forgotten” so roll up and enjoy a week of great movie screenings – from retro classics to the latest blockbusters!

There is lots on throughout the week, with many events FREE! Download your programme here…the paper version will be available soon at The Core and Savoy.
