A village pub will be screening short films created by students from West Suffolk College at its first film festival, being held tomorrow.

The White Horse, in Finningham, has a ‘cinema’ with a 120 inch drop down screen, comfy sofas and a 5.1 Dolby surround sound system.

Ordinarily, it shows films available from Filmbank.co.uk but tomorrow it will screen films by Media Production students at the Bury St Edmunds college.

“One of the things we’re keen to do is have a film festival here and we’ve managed to negotiate a revolving project of screening film after film at the cinema we have,” said landlord Steven Trumm.

Mr Trumm, who recently returned to run the pub with his partner, Lorna Doyle, selected which films he wanted to include after attending a private screening at Cineworld, in Bury St Edmunds, on Friday, where all of students’ final work was shown.

A college spokeswoman confirmed it had agreed to supply content for the festival.
