Festival time - film's big screen premiere

As the art scene continues to flourish in North Devon, Ilfracombe stages its inaugural film festival over three days later this month (April 22 - 24).

Among the packed programme of feature and short films, you'll have the chance to see the mini-documentary about my work as a taxidermy and assemblage artist on the big screen for the first time. It is showing at 2pm on Sunday April 24th on Screen 2 at the town's Embassy Cinema.

Ilfracombe Film Festival organiser Julia Knight said: "We're really looking forward to the diverse range of films on offer throughout the festival and pleased that Paul's film can be part of it. There are so many talented and creative people in North Devon, and this is a great opportunity to showcase them." Other films showing on the Sunday afternoon include 'Every Dive is an Adventure' and 'The Deep'.


The 3-minute film about my work was made by award-winning filmmaker Mikey Corker, another talented North Devon resident. We have more mini movies in the pipeline. For a full programme of festival films, please click here.



Paul Broomfield artist - in the media

My taxidermy and assemblage art is featured a two-page spread in this month's Woolacombe & Mortehoe Voice magazine, the first edition of 2016.

It is great to have the support of local publications like this in my home area of North Devon. You can read it below, or pick up a print copy at outlets in the Woolacombe area. The piece is written by journalist & media man Peter Robinson.

Also coming up soon, a feature will be in the April edition of Devon Life magazine out later this month, and I'm delighted to say the short film about my art shot by Mikey Corker has been accepted in the inaugural Ilfracombe Film Festival which runs from April 22nd - 24th.
