About the Cheap Thrills! Zero Budget Film Festival

After getting started in 2011, the festival has grown year on year and attracted entries from across the world as well as showcasing local talent. It now operates annually in both Sheffield and Loughborough, offering two fantastic chances for filmmakers and audiences to celebrate their mutual love of film. The festival shows the work of professional and amateur filmmakers of all ages side-by-side. Free to attend and free to enter, the only rule is that the films must be less than 8 minutes long, entertaining, family friendly, and have cost little or nothing to make. With refreshments, live interval music, and passionate staff, these events provide an escape from big budget mainstream entertainment, where accessibility and getting involved are the name of the game. The next Loughborough festival will be taking place in spring 2016.

Recorded in Loughborough’s Carillon over the course of a weekend, Sam Belinfante’s audio-visual installation considers processes of ageing as markers of time passing; a resonant issue for thinking through and about sound as a medium. 

Informed by the concept of ‘tintinnabulation’—the lingering sound of a struck bell—it explores the subtle but constant processes of decay that touch the Carillon and the people and objects that coalesce around it. The work documents collaborative actions taken to extend the life of the bells, contrasting their quiet dormancy with the bustle of restoration. 

Installed in the ground floor of the Carillon tower, in a space ordinarily used to display objects from the Carillon Museum collection, the film celebrates small acts of care while reflecting on the impossibility of reversing material entropy. Whilst the Carillon is an enduring musical symbol of Loughborough, Belinfante’s approach eschews more obvious explorations of identity for a quiet meditation on the caring processes that are integral to all musical performances, instruments and the maintenance of a place’s identity. Sound, curation and performance intertwine in a struggle of preservation and de-composition. 

This event is part of (re)composition, Radar's main commissioning strand for 2017/18, which explores how music makes place and places make music. The project draws on the research of Dr Allan Watson in Loughborough University's Department of Geography, and has expanded to engage with research across the Social Sciences.
