There are fears that there will be no Dover film festival in 2021 because of revenue lost due to the pandemic.

In an attempt to save the show, producer Mike McFarnell is hoping people will subscribe to watch the popular Dover films online.

He is inviting viewers to pay a small annual subscription of £10 to gain access to all 18 annual Dover films.

These are a treasure trove of memories and capture the events and lives of the people of Dover.

This clip from March 2004 features Richard Branson setting off from Dover on the fastest crossing of the English Channel in an amphibious vehicle.

The annual festival shows the latest local film plus a compilation of vintage footage from a chosen year.

Mike said: “We need to replace the income we normally receive from ticket sales when the festival is held at the Silver Screen cinema in Dover.”

After paying costs, this income is relatively small but allows organisers to buy equipment that is necessary for producing the films.

Dover Rotary Club is backing the project and donating £250 to the festival fund.
