Maritime Film Festival - January 2020

by Andy Beharrell 7 Dec 2019 11:29 GMT 17-19 January 2020

We all know that going sailing is the best way to enjoy the water, but, in the middle of January when it is cold, wet and windy, watching others sailing comes a close second! So, to ensure we can all get our fix of sailing this winter, the Woolverstone Project and the Woodbridge Riverside Trust have organised a unique event - a Maritime Film Festival.

The film festival takes place between January 17th and 19th 2020 and is a celebration of the best of yachting and maritime films from all eras - from Hollywood blockbusters like Adrift, through to classics like Riddle of the Sands. Other films will include The Mercy, Maiden, Life on the Deben, Turning Tide and Deep Water. Each film will be introduced by a short talk and we look forward to welcoming the renowned yachting journalist Bob Fisher, Drummond Challis (the original producer of Riddle of the Sands), one of the original Maiden crew and Rear Admiral Roy Clare who as well as having been Commodore of Dartmouth Naval Training College was also the Head of the National Maritime Museum. Some great talks to support entertaining films.

The festival will take place in the beautiful town of Woodbridge in Suffolk, close to Ipswich. It will be in the Long Shed - a beautiful boat shed next door to the famous Woodbridge Tide Mill where a replica of the Sutton Hoo Burial Ship is being built.

Full details and tickets are available from www.maritimefilmfestival.co.uk or you can ring the booking line on 01394 610983 and leave a message.

Any surplus from the event will help the two organising charities - the Woolverstone Project and the Woodbridge Riverside Trust.
