The premiere of ‘Peerifool’ by the Chagford filmmaking group was a great success, with a full picture house in Exeter, Devon on March 28th. The film is a magical children’s faery tale from the Orkney islands about three young girls outwitting a nasty ogre!
It is wonderful to see British folklore being brought to life in such a wonderful way. Director and faery harpist Elizabeth-Jane Baldry and the Chagford film group are now working on bringing us more magical movie making faerie fun.
Sir Lanval is the next film in production, with the international premiere to take place in Rennes, Exeter’s twin city, on 30th October 2010 with the UK premiere a fortnight later. More details can be found at: www.fairytalefilms.co.uk
