Senior Film Advisor

Sussex Traditions is delighted to announce a very important appointment to our board of advisers. As the work and compass of Sussex Traditions grows, so too does its requirement for specialist knowledge; no more so than in the aquisition, preservation and display of archive film. We are fortunate therefore to secure the professional advice of Paul Cotgrove who has agreed to act as both a mentor and technical and artistic guide to the team at Sussex Traditions. Paul promotes two major international film festivals in his home town of Southend on Sea and is well known in the British Film Industry. His background in rescuing rare and valuable film is remarkable. Paul is keen to support Sussex Traditions and we welcome him to this voluntary post. His advice and knowledge will be invaluable in the years to come.

At this point Sussex Traditions is putting out a call for any archive film you may have. Often the most insignificant footage provides real insight to the County and the way its people lived.
