Important Announcement - Wigan and Leigh Short Film Festival 2021 Due to circumstances beyond our control relating to Fire and Building Regulations, we are no longer able to hold the 8th Wigan and Leigh Short Film Festival at the Leigh Spinners Mill venue as planned and publicised. This has been extremely disappointing for the team but please rest assured we have made alternative arrangements and the event will still go ahead live. We have used this alternative venue many times before, it has free parking, bar facilities and lift access. 1st Floor, The Turnpike Centre, Civic Square, Leigh, WN7 1EB Unfortunately, moving the event has created a significant impact on seating as capacity is reduced at the Turnpike. If you already have tickets and you possibly may not attend please let us know ASAP so that we may reallocate your seat. Doors will open at 6pm for a prompt 7pm start time estimated finish is 10pm including a 20 minute interval. If you are a Director and coming to the event, we would like to interview you on camera before the event starts. Please arrive at 6pm for this. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ We celebrate and showcase filmmaking from the across the region and internationally. From comedies and dramas to documentaries and animations. As we enter our seventh year we are proud to continue to have the support of our patrons; Christopher Eccleston, Matthew McNulty, Ben Batt, Sacha Parkinson and Jo Platt. The film festival was born out of Leigh Film Society; a not for profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, which in 2018 was awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Service. 2021 will see us continue in our commitment to working closely with colleges and universities by offering placements and hands-on development opportunities to young people at the festival. Our festival events are run entirely by volunteers with all proceeds being directly invested into the following year’s events. Please watch our social media for more news, as further details of the events are announced soon.
