Swansea Seeks Jewish Films

Published on November 04, 2006 with No Comments

Swansea Film FestivalFor the first time ever, Swansea held its inaugural film festival in the summer.

And now, the organisers are looking to do it all over again next summer and are seeking Jewish filmmakers to be a part of it.

While, it’s most famous citizen Catherine Zeta-Jones was not around for 2006, there are rumours that Zeta-Jones and hubby Michael Douglas are considering making an appearance in the Welsh city.

The first Swansea Film Festival had over 160 submissions and for 2007, organisers are looking for more to fill the planned busy programme.

“We are looking forward to seeing entries from all communities including Jewish filmmakers,” said Swansea Film Festival boss Binda Singh.

Singh himself is a playwright whose credits include Funkface, a play about the life of a 30something single Jewish mother working in the cosmetics department of a Manchester department store.

The event will run from June 1 to June 10 and submissions need to arrive by May 25.

Categories include: Horror, Film Noir, Music based Video/DVD/Film, Animation and Documentary.
