Behind the Seams

For the past few years, Borderlines has held a lavish and glitzy ball to celebrate the Film Festival in the company of sponsors and guests.

The brainchild of Borderlines board member, Peter Williamson, the Ball takes place in the opulent Victorian splendour of Hereford Town Hall. This year was special. The highlight of the Ball was a fabulous film-themed fashion show featuring students and staff of Hereford Sixth Form College, masterminded by Diane Evans, in order to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

It was a triumph of teamwork, talent and panache as demonstrated in this short documentary by Roxanne Prophet, Shoot Out Trainee at The Rural Media Company, who directed and mentored the team of 13-19 year olds camera operators.

The film affords a few poignant glimpses of Peter who died a few weeks later but who was bubbling over with enthusiasm for the show, anticipating the sheer pleasure it would afford the Festival's guests.
