Birmingham Film Festival adds
Mark Pegg to team
Birmingham Film Festival has announced that British actor and producer Mark Pegg, has joined the team as non-executive chairman.
Mark’s career has been extensive both in front of and behind the camera, becoming a popular face on British television screens in the role of Alfie Kane in EastEnders and Tony Wier in the BAFTA award winning and critically acclaimed Our Friends in the North, before going on to produce Heroes and Villains released in the UK by Lionsgate and starring James Corden and Jenny Agutter, the award-winning documentary Tovarish I am not Dead and most recently Dream On starring Richard Coyle, Sienna Guillory and Sam Torrence.
Kevin McDonagh, founder of Birmingham Film Festival commented:
Over the last four years, we have seen the festival expand beyond what we imagined and that’s down to the enthusiasm, talent and support of all the filmmakers who have been involved as well as the local creative community who have supported us.
We’re now able to add many more seminars and workshops this year, as well as making many of the film screenings free to attend. We’ve also been able to include more TV and multimedia aspects to this years programme, so we really are expanding our reach and hopefully usefulness to the local media industry.
Our main concern before launching the festival was if there was really an appetite for one in the city, possibly explaining why there hasn’t been anything of its kind previously. However, the growth and success of the festival is a testament to the drive, passion and enthusiasm of the Birmingham Film Community.
Birmingham Film Festival which is now in its fourth year, will return to its landmark venue at Millennium Point, Birmingham on 1st to 10th November 2019. The festival invites talented and independent film-makers from all over the globe to participate.
