The Bigger Printing Company will be sponsoring the Cheltenham Film Festival for the first time this year.
The Cheltenham Film Festival is a new addition to Cheltenham’s internationally acclaimed festival calendar. And although only in its 2nd year, the Festival aims to attract over 2000 film goers to its fantastic range of special screening events.
This year Cheltenham Film Festival will be broadly celebrating the ‘History of Film’; a theme that allows a flexible approach to programming, while helping the organisers to support new film making talent.
The festival is accompanied by a vibrant educational programme that seeks to nurture the next generation of British filmmakers and acting talent. The programme will include casting workshops, critical lectures and seminars, and supportive screening opportunities.
The organisers describe it as a festival that promotes diversity, equality and inclusivity at both a local and national level.
As an active supporter of local cultural and sporting events, Bigger Printing’s Director, Sebastian Stanley, was keen to get involved. He comments: “I’ve always enjoyed helping local events and it’s one of the reasons that we’re so active with Cheltenham Football Club. But I think it’s even more important to help organisations like Cheltenham Film Festival that depend on local businesses to get their events off the ground. I’m proud to provide the organisers with the large format materials that they need and to be associated with such a dynamic, inspiring event.”
In sponsoring the film festival, Bigger Printing will sit alongside leading brands like Kraft Foods, Hotel du Vin and First Great Western. And with the organisers soon revealing a line-up of high profile guests, you’d be well advised to watch this space...
The Cheltenham film festival takes place on 4th-6th November 2011.
