Day of the Decaf, Film Festival 2017
Okay, so I’m totally psyched for this one, hold on boys.
Day of the Decaf is the concept of local film maker Aaron Child, intended to provide “a platform for creatives and film makers through a fun genre and promote independent coffee shops in a unique way.”
I spoke to Aaron about the project whilst I was involved in a similar promotional for The Shrewsbury Coffeehouse. I asked him a little about the festival and how it came about. Aaron enthused:- “So many creative people gravitate towards coffee shops and If you get chatting to people- you will no doubt find like minded people sitting in the same room! So why not bring these people together?”
There are six talented, local film makers involved this year, including Harry Fisher whom I had the privilege of working with on the Shrewsbury Coffeehouse zombie-short, The six venues on board are
Liar Liar, The Shrewsbury Coffeehouse, Ginger and Co. , Greenwood Cafe and of course, Alberts Shed.
The screening of the films will be held at Alberts Shed on the 29th of October, fitting with the ‘zombie’ theme ~spooky~. There will be categorised prizes, including “best film”. After the screenings, there will be a Halloween party with live music and drinks; so if for no other reason, get your ass down for a good time.
