South Norfolk Council’s Olympic-themed film festival

South Norfolk Council's Olympic-themed film festival will be launched on February 5 with a screening of the British classic Chariots of Fire at the former Regal Cinema in Wymondham.

This is the first of eight inspirational films to be shown throughout the district's village halls and community centres in the month-long 'True Film Festival'.

The council has been working closely with Creative Arts East and village groups to host the festival.

South Norfolk Council's deputy leader Martin Wiby said: 'This is South Norfolk's first ever film festival and is not to be missed! Come along to a screen near you and be inspired by stories of victory in the face of adversity.'

As well as Chariots of Fire, movie goers will also be able to watch The Flying Scotsman, Cool Runnings, Iris, Made in Dagenham, The Blind Side, Topsy Turvey and Nurse Edith Cavell.
