Slow Short Film Festival

Mayfield is hosting an international film festival this September. One hundred and fifty three films were submitted from round the world, and the 13 short-listed will be shown on Saturday, 9th September. It is an all-day event beginning at 11am in the Memorial Hall.

These films represent the best of slow cinema, a vital genre that reacts against the speed and distraction of contemporary culture. Screenings will be supplemented by Q&As, talks and prize giving. Food and drink will be in abundance.

Tickets can be bought from Burnetts Estate Agency in the High Street for a new price of £10. For more information, and a detailed programme, go to
