What's Floating Around

What’s Floating Around Cloud 9? 29 January 2018


Welcome to another week and it’s all hands on deck for the Nottingham Media Festival this week which is looming ever nearer! If you haven’t already booked then make sure you get on board for a truly amazing time.

The Festival is running from 8-10 March and there are a range of great events taking place, which in addition to our free venue finding service, we are managing here at Cloud 9 Towers.

The VR Expo & Awards is a brand new event concept embracing all aspects of  Immersive Technologies. With panel sessions, workshops, an exhibition, VR in Music, career clinics and an awards ceremony celebrating innovation, this three day event is not to be missed.

 The Nottingham International Microfilm Festival returns to the City for the third time, bigger and better than ever. With more content, a packed programme including a summit, awards ceremony and workshops, plus a special film competition,  this truly international event is a must for any Short Film enthusiasts.

 The Fresh Creative Awards are in Nottingham for the first time, celebrating the Best of British and strengthening the UK’s platform as a world leader in the creative industries. No boundaries, no categories, just a showcase of the very best ideas from Great Britain & a great big Awards ceremony to recognise the winners on Thursday 8 March.

 There are two opportunities to enjoy the Short Film Show as part of the Nottingham Media Festival. The first is an informal and relaxed evening at the Nottingham Contemporary where we will be screening three hours of short films back to back from the official selection of The Short Film Show. Stay a little or stay for the duration and enjoy the selections from the TV series in all of their glory on the big screen.   

 The Lego Legends competition invites individuals and teams to submit their designs for display as part of the festival with a range of great prizes available. Open to any age group this is a chance to show off your skills and design expertise to a  wide audience and have some fun!

 Plus we have a new initiative, introducing SLICE: Student Lives in the Creative Enterprises, which are a series of engaging coffee mornings and one on one afternoon teas as part of the Nottingham Media Festival. These are not your traditional lectures, but intimate events designed to enable students to enjoy a real opportunity to have a chat over cake with the very people who can help to shape your future. 

 Check out the Festival website for full details of the events and have a great week.
