We look back at 2016, The Film Bunch's first year. It's been a rollercoaster ride but what a year! All our events had BSL interpreters and all our short films had captions. We couldn't have done it without our volunteers and the support of our partners & sponsors, thank you so much. Here's to many more short films in 2017!
We hosted our first film quiz last week and we were happy with the turnout! We'd like to thank everyone who came along, we hope you enjoyed it. Congratulations to the winning team 'Jalepeños'! They won tickets to Raindance's Saturday Film School (worth £119 each) AND free entry to all our events for 12 months.
