A fantastic celebration of regional film


Over the past few years I have contributed several reviews and pieces for a regional British website named Midlands Movies. A website that was set up to celebrate and promote actors, crew and film productions from the Midlands region of England.

The site has been running since Winter 2012 with its activities expanding into free film nights a few years ago and last year saw the first live award ceremony which celebrated the best of the region.

Now why am I writing this now? Well it’s nearly been a year and the second annual Midlands Movies Film Awards is in this planing stages and they need your support be it through raising awareness or cold hard cash via a Kickstarter campaign, but don’t worry you do get a decent return for your support.

Now why am I bothered? Despite not having any stake in the awards I backed last years event (and had a great evening attending as part of my perk) and I have already backed the next event simply because I think the whole concept behind the site deserves support …ironically because it’s whole point is to altruistically promote the work of others.

So if you can (and especially if you are based in the Midlands of the UK) check out the site, follow Midlands Movies on Twitter and check out the awards ceremony which are due to held at Hansom Hall in Leicester on Saturday 3rd March 2019.
