Three local film-makers will be the special guests at a meeting of King’s Lynn Community Cinema Club on Thursday, March 3.

The event is called “Homegrown” and they have been invited to go along to introduce and show a short film (around 30 minutes), thus giving a greater insight into the mysteries of the film-making process.

The programme is a fascinating and diverse mixture of animation, dramatisation and documentation – a real celebration of film-making and of the local area.

Deb Curtis, a writer, actor and director from The Field Theatre Group, Littleport, will open the meeting by introducing the acclaimed film Common Ground, a drama documentary of life in The Fens at the turn of the last century.

This will be followed by actor/director Martins Strals introducing his film The Great Story, a collection of 12 stop motion animations that focus on the First World War.

The project has involved over 72 young people of over 10 nationalities and production has taken place in the UK, Germany and Latvia.

The evening will end with well-known local film-maker Rob Fuller, who will give an insight into his work on The Land of Tradition, a documentary which focuses on the importance of agriculture in West Norfolk, using archive footage, interviews and dramatisations.

This event at Marriott’s Warehouse on Lynn’s south Quay, is free to members and their guests but non-members are very welcome too on payment of a non-member entrance fee of £3 on the door, this includes interval refreshments.

Club officials say: “There has never been a better time to consider joining the King’s Lynn Community Cinema Club.

“Over the last six years it has gone from strength to strength and is now offering even more for members, not just a great variety of films, but also a wide range of regular events which are either heavily subsidised or free to our members and their guests.”
