Filmmakers in Cornwall have a problem: there is now only a single annual facility to show their work.
We have passed through times with a variety of opportunities for getting work to the public. Now there is just Cornwall Film Festival once a year in November. To the extent that it has reduced the possibility of other screening initiatives the festival has actually done damage.
Despite changes in technology that should have improved things beyond recognition, we are back in the situation we were in during the nineties, when pretty much the only chance for Cornish filmmakers to get our work seen was the Celtic Film & Television Festival (now the Celtic Media Festival).
The Cornwall Film Festival should have a place amongst a range of screening initiatives taking place the length and breadth of Cornwall. But as a sole opportunity it is not enough.
