Bucolic joys of Borderlines

Apart from the nine films showing at the Courtyard today - filling both the studio theatre and the main theatre from 11a.m. - there are ten films being shown outside Hereford in towns such as Leominster, Ludlow and Presteigne and Village Halls in Bodenham, Bosbury, Dilwyn and Lingen. The geographical scope of the Borderlines FilmFest and the quality of the films on offer serve to make it a gift for all of us living in a beautiful, but remote part of the country. Children are not being neglected either. U rated films pop up on the Festival Diary schedule on most days - notably Despicable Me at Moccas Village Hall tomorrow evening at 6.30 and Ponyo on Sunday afternoon at Bedstone and Hopton Castle Village Hall. With so much film available on DVD it is heart-warming to see how many of us are joining the ranks of the Borderlines and showing up in person to experience cinema as an "audience" and as part of a community.
