Holmfirth Film Festival is looking to recruit volunteers after a highly successful sixth festival.
And has also just announced its film programme for the autumn.
Festival Chairman Stephen Dorril said: “Despite seeing a drop in income from funders which meant that we had to cut certain events and our programme for young people, this year’s festival in May proved to be a hit with audiences.
“We screened over 60 films and put on some brilliant talks and events.
“We will be looking to expand our activities next year and are looking for some more volunteers to help our overworked band of helpers that plans and runs the festival. We are particularly seeking people to help with promotion during the weeks running up to the festival and also those who can devote time to developing the social media and website activities.”
There is an annual general meeting in September and if you would like to help contact the Festival: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The festival aims to present the best of national and world cinema and will be screening Shaun the Sheep and Testament of Youth (September 6 at Honley), Watermark to promote the Holmfirth Transition Town, curry and film at the Massala Lounge featuring The Second Best Marigold Hotel.
Other films include Force Majeure, Far from the Madding Crowd, Wild Tales, Kajaki which will raise funds for the Army disability charities and there will be a special screening of Back to the Future for the 30th anniversary.
