The Great White Silence at Newhaven Fort

We had a great time, and a fantastic turn out, at Newhaven Fort on Saturday evening, with our special screening of The Great White Silence. We had some interesting discussions with many members of the audience after the event – we were so pleased that everybody found the film so engaging!

Here are some photographs…

...and here's an 'audience eye view' of the film underway! We nearly had a full house, with only a couple of tickets to spare, and a few house seats at the back!

This weekend, on 22 June, there will be a special screening of one of Team Filmspot’s favourite films, A Canterbury Tale in Veules Les Roses, France, to mark their twinning with the picturesque Sussex village, Alfriston. We have helped to organise the film and licencing for this event, which we hope will be a success. Sadly we can’t make it over ourselves, but we look forward to posting about it soon. In the Autumn, we will present a French film, as suggested by the film club in Veules Les Roses – more news about this will appear over the summer.

We’re also looking forward to screening The Great White Silenceat Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum (in honour of Salisbury0born Herbert Ponting, the Director of the film) in October – more details will appear on here and the Filmspot website later in the Summer.

Our next event at Newhaven Fort will be in the Autumn, when there will be all sorts of ghoulish fun for our screening of Ghostbusters on 2 November.
