We were delighted to sponsor the Romford Film Festival's fifth annual event held at The Mercury Shopping Centre in June. Over 200 films were shown including world premieres: ‘I’m An Electric Lampshade’ the perplexing story of the man who gave up his day-job and invested his life savings into becoming a rock star! And other big named films including ‘I am Vengeance – Retaliation’ – starring Vinnie Jones.
“It’s great to screen such cool films being made in the area” says Spencer Hawken Festival Director. “The festival has always been about inspiring people in Romford with great films from across the world and with films made from around here. This side of London / Essex is full of great filmmakers and it’s great to be able to give them a platform to show their work”.
The festival held its usual red-carpet special networking events including an awards ceremony and a cross-cultural launch event. The cultural press launch included some of the best local and international films alongside special ‘out of competition’ films from the Eurasian region.
The ceremony’s awards were sponsored by a number of businesses working locally including Bidvest Noonan who sponsored “Best Short Film. The award was presented by Commercial Manager, David Rolls, pictured below with his wife.
Bidvest Noonan provides Cleaning and Security services to The Mercury Mall Shopping Centre.
