Last week I went up to the Launch Party for the 2nd Coventry Film Festival. The festival itself takes place in July (15th – 18th) but this was a promotional event which included the first screening of “Echoes” a feature film by Halogen Entertainment and Tayler Made Production, Coventry based film companies who are both film makers and driving forces behind the festival itself. As an actor in Echoes it was great to be able to support this new and growing event, and a good excuse to get the tux out and enjoy a special night on the red carpet!
Christopher Clarke has been instrumental in moving this forward and the fact that, in only its second year, films are being submitted to Coventry from all over the world is a strong vote of confidence in his work and that of the whole festival team. It is only fitting that the city that can boast Billie Whitelaw and Ellen Terry amongst its dramatic daughters should put itself on the big screen map and I was privileged to be a small part of it.
