St Petroc’s Society Shorts
This year we are working with St Petrocs as we believe homelessness shouldn’t be an issue in our society. St Petroc’s believe that for anyone facing homelessness, for whatever reason, there should be the care and support they need to help them.
We will be highlighting shorts around the subject of homelessness, single homeless and anyone falling outside the responsibility of statutory authorities, sleeping rough and may have a range of difficulties, including mental ill-health, relationship breakdown, drug or alcohol dependency, or an offending lifestyle which contribute to their homelessness and social exclusion. With panel discussion.
On Sunday 17th November you are invited to an afternoon of CORNISH LANGUAGE including Cornish language shorts with directors there for Q&A. The main feature will be of Yn Mor by Zoe Alker. This is the first winning film to be produced under FylmK – an annual Cornish language film competition supported by Cornwall Council and Falmouth School of Film and TV. With a panel discussion including Mark Trevethan, Denzil Monk and Charlie Fripp.
