NEW ABOUT CHESTER
Discover the undiscovered
Film Chester produces ‘Undiscovered Chester’ as a way of preserving the history of Chester on film while encouraging movie-making in and around the City, by purchasing a DVD you are supporting the local filmmaking community as well as helping to sustain Film Chester as an organisation.
Currently in Production
Our first documentary is currently in post-production and covers The Minstrels’ Court, which first took place in 1204 when entertainers at a fair in the city helped save the Earl of Chester from Welsh soldiers. The regular event is one of only a few re-enactments in Britain to take place in its original and authentic location;
St John’s, beside the amphitheatre, the oldest church in Cheshire. The offical trailer will be posted here soon, but in the meantime check out Film Chester’s ‘Changing Times’ film (which now has 53,000 views on Facebook!), made in conjunction with Chester’s History & Heritage Centre photographic archive.
