VMI Sponsors First Prize of Cine Circle Film Festival

VMI sponsored the 2019 Cine Circle Film Festival, a relatively new film festival designed to encourage recognition for new film makers.   

Founder, Zbigniew Siwek, describes Cine Circles aims are "to connect, educate and provide work and funding opportunities for independent filmmakers".

"These aims echoed VMI's fundamental values, which are to encourage new entrants into the Film Industry, recognising that today's short film makers will be making feature film and TV Dramas in the future, so we decided to support them", said VMI's Managing Director, Barry Bassett

VMI sponsored the top film prize of £1,000 of camera equipment rental which was won by Grant Taylor for his film, "Ecstasy", an inspiring story based on his Dad's suffering from Parkinson's disease.

Grant is planning on shooting his next production with VMI equipment in January 2020.
