A letter to Salford from Sir Ben Kingsley…

Please don’t let this be the last word on Salford’s Film Festival.

Film festivals are important cultural events that by their very nature bring the beauty, energy, wit, excitement and grandeur of cinema together for a concentrated period of time to a fortunate city and its audience.

We get to mix and mingle with actors, writers, directors, producers, designers, directors of photography, in a unique ambience charged with debate and creativity. A gift to all the community. A thrill. Especially to an environment as rich in promise and diversity as Salford.

I would urge the business and civic leaders; Please don’t let this be the last word.

Ben Kingsley
November 2006
