As work towards our next festival this November progresses, we’re pleased to announce the addition of Gasway, East Anglia’s largest heating company, to our line-up of festival sponsors for NFF2021.
Joining existing sponsors BFI Film Audience Network, Norwich Business Improvement District and Norwich City Council, Gasway which has been providing heating services since 1982, will also be premiering its third instalment of its Winter TV advert “Warm stories” during the event.
Gasway’s Managing Director, Nick Bartram said: ‘As part of Flagship Group, we have a strong social purpose and have always supported the communities we serve. Our adverts and short films focus on the warmth that our communities give and their importance in our daily lives, which this year feels even more important than ever. I am really looking forward to seeing this year’s warm stories on the big screen too.’
Gasway’s sponsorship of the event will help to allow the festival to continue nurturing filmmaking talent and to provide a vast array of screenings, panels, and workshops for visitors during the event.
Gasway’s Marketing Manager, David Metcalf said: ‘We’re delighted to be a headline sponsor for Norwich Film Festival and to have our 2021 “Warm Stories” advert premier at the launch event before it hits Sky TV. We have worked closely with Trett Films to produce our ‘Warm Stories’ advert each year and we’re very excited to be part of this year’s film festival. It is important to us that we support local events in our communities and the filmmakers of Norwich who have helped us visualise that warmth really matters.’
The 2021 edition of the festival will run from 12th-21st November 2021, with a launch event also set for 9th November. Following the event’s successful temporary shift online during last year’s COVID-19 lockdown, this year’s festival is set to take place both online and in venues, allowing local, national, and international audiences to attend. Full details of films, events and special guests will be confirmed in the coming months.
John Gordon-Saker (Chairman of Norwich Film Festival) said: ‘We’re delighted to welcome Gasway as a headline sponsor as we move towards our next festival this November. We share a passion for supporting and celebrating the local community, and we’re very proud to continue with their support for this year’s event.’
