Legendary silent comedian Buster Keaton counted 1928 feature The Cameraman as ‘one of his pet pictures’, and that’s not just because it has a pet monkey in it. This is Keaton at his comedic best, and this hilarity-packed screening at All Saints Church in Wellington is accompanied by a live score from Meg Morley.
Keaton plays a street corner photographer who falls in love with Sally (Marceline Day), the receptionist at a newsreel production office. Determined to impress her, he buys a movie camera and begins a series of attempts to film some ‘on-the-spot’ news, which naturally goes anything but according to plan.
This brand-new film festival, part of the year-long celebrations for Telford’s 50th birthday, will treat audiences to a jam-packed month of screenings and special events in venues all over Telford. The festival is the result of a collaboration between Telford & Wrekin Council and Flatpack Projects (the team behind Birmingham’s Flatpack Film Festival) and is part of BFI Film Hub Midlands’ mission to develop film culture across the region. http://www.telford50.co.uk/filmfestival #TFILMFEST
