Hyperdrive 3 will run in October 2017 with filmmakers from across the world showing- off their latest productions, and, all the while, raising a great big pile of money for the Demelza House Children's Hospice.
We will be hosting the festival at the Hailsham Pavilion (Registered charity number: 1062538, pavilionhailsham.co.uk), a beautifully refurbished Edwardian theatre/cinema. Part of the money raised will go to renting the cinema for the two days of the festival.
Each session will consist of one or two Short films (running time dependent) and a Feature Film.
