“C Fylm (Cornwall’s community film club) are presenting a season of contemporary documentary films called “Films for our Future” in Devoran Village Hall with Q& A afterwards. The series will run one Wednesday evening a month from September for a topical documentary film to be screened with an expert (local if possible) to host a film discussion after the screening. Screenings will begin at 19.45 doors open at 19.30. To meet the license obligations (and pay the film makers) to screen contemporary documentaries all attenders join the C Fylm Club (membership £5) which gives free admission to the first screening (and a range of other lovely benefits including membership of the 26 other C Fylm Clubs around Cornwall) – thereafter £4. You are welcome to bring your own nibbles and drinks. Teas and snacks will be served and patrons encouraged to buy to support the ongoing film series!
Wednesday 31st October La Grande Illusion plus Cornish Tommies- commissioned by C Fylm Devoran Village Hall
Doors 7.30pm Film 7.45pm.
A new short documentary accompanies a season of First World War films across Cornwall this autumn.
To celebrate the Centenary of Armistice Day, C Fylm has commissioned a young student team and school and college children to get involved in telling and learning about Cornwall’s First World War stories by producing a short documentary film. The Cornish Tommies project will enable local people throughout Cornwall to come together to preserve the memories and heritage of Cornish families who lived through the First World War.
In the La Grande Illusion two French soldiers are captured and imprisoned in a German POW camp during WW1. Several escape attempts follow until they are sent to a seemingly impenetrable fortress which seems impossible to escape from.
Cornish Tommies tells the story of an 18 year old Cornish Miner from St Agnes called up in 1917.
