FlicKerNOW - Cornwall Film

the first stop for film and moving image in cornwall and the south west



The flicKerNOW website is an exciting new o­nline film and media resource for Cornwall, with developing links into Plymouth and the south west.

flicKerNOW lists the latest screenings and moving image events, from art-house and mainstream cinema, new films, live installations and local shorts to meetings, workshops and events.

flicKerNOW aims to raise the profile and engagement with moving image in its widest sense.

"If this is what Cornish cinema is all about, then let's have more of it!"

Mike Leigh discussing Roughcut at the Cornwall Film Festival 2004

"The FlickerNow website provided us with a networking facility unique in its focus o­n Cornwall. It is a great way of accessing information specific to the region and we were able to post cast/crew adverts directly to local talent. No national film network can provide such a concentrated resource that both targets and highlights the strengths and talents of the region. It's a great way to make contacts and maintain a healthy film-making community."

Fran Broadhurst and Mathy Tremewan - Govynn Kernewek winners whose film "De Sul" was screened at the Cornwall Film Festival in November 2005.
