On-Location Film Festival - Worthing

Nothing (good) ever happens in Worthing they say- our quiet home town on the South Coast - until this year at least. First off in April was the End of the Pier Film Festival specialising in short, independent and locally made films. Then a reformed and incredibly successful Open House Trail in July, the wacky Birdmen jumping off Worthing Pier in August and now the On-location Film Festival in September.

The On-location film Festival is the idea of Stefan Sykes who helped set up the Worthing Film Club to show interesting films every month. The idea is to take the films out of the cinema to different and relevent venues which don't normally show films and which film goers might not normally see.

So the festival starts with Race - a Bollywood film which is being shown in Chilcha Indian restaurant with a buffet included in the price. For the next film the Classic B-horror movie Carnival of Souls the festival decamps to the Pier Nightclub on the end of Worthing Pier and so on with Anvil at a recording studio, the Hustler at a Poolhall and A Matter of Life and Death at a Church.

Tickets are available from Coast Cafe, Oxfam Bookshop - Montague Street, and Steves DVD's Warwick Street Worthing
