Adventures in Film at Britain’s Lowest Place


In September 2018 the Fen Edge village of Holme will host a celebration of independent film making in an event that melds aspects of a traditional film festival with an entertainment event. The event is centred around the historic Admiral Wells (the lowest pub in the British Isles), an establishment that has entertained Charles Dickens, Noël Coward and Charles Babbage. Conveniently close to both Cambridge and Peterborough, in the hunting grounds of King Canute, LowDown is produced by the team who created the Yaxley Festival, the UK’s most ambitious community entertainment event.

With filmmakers and Independent Films right at its heart, we give everyone the ability to network with fellow industry colleagues, as well as actively encourage Filmmakers to attend, or hold, if they wish, panels and workshops for not only their peers, but also those in the general public with an interest in all aspects of the industry. The panels and workshops will be focusing on all aspects of the process; including VFX, Practical Make-Up, Editing, Writing and much more, meaning there is something for everyone. Add in to this activities such as Silent Cinema, Drive-In Movie Theatre, a small amount of Traders, Film & TV Props and a Grand Finale Presentation to name but a few, LowDown will be an event for everyone.

Submission to LowDown is FREE 🙂
