VPAJ/KOTE First Words: Postponed until the new year...

 

VPAJ & KOTE took the decision last week to postpone our planned inaugural First Words until mid-January 2013.  We still believe that this is a worthwhile event to pursue, and so will try again - with a longer lead period...and at a time when there are less other things going on - come the New Year.

VPAJ & KOTE Launching First Words: Wednesday 21st Nov12, Redbones => Save the date

With both VPAJ and Kingston on the Edge (KOTE) embracing a multiplicity of creative and tech disciplines, we are together creating a space for those in our community to showcase their work and at the same time receive input from as diverse an audience as possible.  

Called First Words, our concept is as follows:

- Interested persons will have the chance to perform/show/read/illustrate their work (10-15 minutes) in front of a live audience.

The feedback has been so positive for Kingston on the Edge (KOTE) Short Film Night that Redbones will be repeating the experience for those who missed it first time around! The list of contributing film-makers included both promising and established talent that came together to make the 4th year of KOTE's Short Film Night possibly the best one ever.
