A Festival of Film Lovers for Film Lovers at Swinge -
Swindon Fringe is a Theatre, Performing Arts and Music festival now in its 6th year. Its always wanted to bring film into the fray, in the past multimedia shows and local film trailer competitions, but as the festival gets bigger its time to go International so they've brought Shout Out Productions in to help.
Swindon IFF @ Swinge (Swindon Fringe) will run 2 days before the live events open, then the IFF Awards ceremony will become the festival launch. Will you be a SWinner?
We'll be based on the Balcony of the legendary MECA in the Heart of the town Centre Culture & Entertainment district.
