We went along to opening night of “Us: The Chester Film Co-oP on Thursday. There was some really interesting and diverse work presented which is a collection of individual work from each of the members of the group spanning fine art to feature film; from the eerie Mumble by Kerry Baldry, the surrealism of Edward Claxton’s “Falling Sequences” and technical wizardry of Mark Ellington and Daniel J Fox’s special effects reel. There is something for everyone with an interest in Film or film making so well worth a visit. You can see “Us: The Chester Film Co-op” until Wednesday 14th May.
The film Co-op is a little gem and needs everyone’s support to keep it going and show Chester this is what we want more of!
You can get involved in numerous ways, with screening dates for the coming months and an open invite to get in touch, suggest ideas and share the love of film with this friendly and welcoming group.
Share your ideas, make friends, collaborate and enjoy; get in touch to get to know more about Chester Film Co-op…
All screenings are at Studio 1 and 2 Northgate Street – the Northgate street side of the Odeon.
