“Ace” the trailer
Showcased by the Godalming Film Club in March 2018.
Very sad to hear of Moray Watson’s death on 2 May 2017. He played the Veteran in this film at the age of 85. A charming and loquacious man who’d worked on over 100 films including acting alongside Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. “Ace” was his last screen appearance as far as we know.

The short film
Just some of the festival selections dating from 2014 onwards. It is still being selected and showcased around the world with the lack of dialogue adding to its international appeal.
