Both Annie Waits and Edith are heading up to the North of England this week to screen at the first annual Bolton International Film Festival.

Actress, Maxine Peake is their festival patron and this is what she had to say about short films:

“For me short films are essential whether it’s drama, comedy or documentary. They are a wonderful way for directors, actors and creatives in the industry to experiment and find their voice. They are also an invaluable vehicle to get messages over quickly and succinctly. They have all the ingredients of a feature but won’t take as much of your time! When Bolton, the town where I was born, announced they were launching a film festival I welcomed their invitation to become a patron. Bolton Film Festival gives film-makers and actors in the area an opportunity to celebrate the talent in and around the town, to share their work to a wider audience and to meet industry experts and other film-makers from across the North West and across the UK. Manchester offers so much, but it’s fantastic that Bolton now has an annual film event of it’s own.”
