Phil Shingler

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the loss of one of our longstanding Trustees, Phil Shingler

Phil was a producer and co-director of the Marlisco award-winning “Marine Heroes”, and Broadcast Union BECTU committee member and representative. He spent forty years in the media industry and his credits include work for Channel 4, TVNZ, PBS (KQED SF) & BBC South West.

He was a great champion of filmmaking in Cornwall, supporting the short film programmes at the festival. He was missed this weekend and would have loved it! He passed away fighting for the rights of others, last week in London.

  1. So sorry to hear about Phil’s death. Haven’t seen him in years, but knew him as a talented film-maker and long-time fellow traveller in the cause of making media production accessible to the wider community. I and all at Somerset Film send our sincere condolences and very best wishes to his friends and family.
    Phil Shepherd
