Bolton International Film Festival

The Octagon Theatre presented a short documentary film at this year’s Bolton Film Festival.

The Fabric of Bolton celebrates the cultural diversity of the town and documents Bolton’s industrial heritage through the lens of the black, Asian and ethnic minority members of the community.

The Fabric of Bolton was screened at The Light Cinema September 29 but is now available to watch online on October 9 (available for 48 hours).

As well as the short film, there is also a digital exhibition of all the collated oral history interviews as well as a collection of archive photography available to view on the Octagon’s web site.
