The Co-op Film Festival

On the 6th October 2011, IGS Media students from years 12 & 13 visited the National Media Museum in Bradford for the 45th anniversary of the Co-ops Film Festival.
The National Media Museum
We arrived at the museum at 10am to find Oliver and James Phelps signing autographs (Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter franchise) this was a great start to the day. Immediately I got in the queue to get a picture with them, being such a Harry Potter fan. After waiting a quarter of an hour in line, Faye and I finally got a picture with the twins and then were asked, following meeting them, if we had any questions we would ask the twins in a question and answer session we would later attend.

We both made some contributions which included questions such as if the twins still met up with member of the Harry Potter cast, or if the two had any phobias. At 11am I attended the Q&A session with James and Oliver, where they were both interviewed and asked questions that students from different schools had wanted to ask the twins. 
At 11:45am I had the chance to interview Alicia Walker the Co-op Film Festival organiser who kindly answered some of my questions about the festival.
These questions included:

1. Exactly how long has the festival been running for?
2. How did you first get involved with the festival?      
 3. In your opinion what’s the best film entry you’ve had this year, and why?                     
4. How do you see the festival developing in the future? (possibly with technological advances)             
  5. The co-op film festival is a national film festival; do you ever get film submissions from international places?
6. Do you think the festival is known internationally?       
7. What do you hope the festival will achieve in the long run?    

8.How do you publicise the festival?

At 12am we all had the chance to see our own film openings and other films that had been submitted by other school in Screening 1. The screening lasted half an hour and included the film openings from students in our year which included Waxed, Wrenched and sleep tight. All of these film openings received a reward and looked really great of the big scene.
