An award-winning local arts organisation, Arty Party, is premiering its new short film this week. The ten minute film called ‘Let Me In’ is a collaboration between participants on Arty Party’s Work and Play project and Shropshire-based professional animator Neil Webber. The free public screening is taking place at 7pm on Thursday 11th March in the theatre at Hadley Learning Centre, Crescent Road in Hadley. Drinks and refreshments will be laid on followed by a social reception.
Chairperson Julia Dean-Richards said: “This heralds a very exciting time for Arty Party as it becomes a lot more outward-facing in the distribution of its work. We hope the release of the film and the creation of the website are just the beginning of a new higher profile for the organisation and the inspiring work it does”.
‘Let Me In’ and the new website was commissioned by the Work and Play project which is funded by the Reaching Communities Fund of the Big Lottery. This is the first opportunity to see the new film before it tours national festivals in 2010. Arty Party’s Performance Group previously won the Best Film award for ‘I Saw a Girl’ at the Oska Bright Film Festival in 2007.
