Major funding partner supports 10th edition of the Festival

We are delighted to announce that Mitie - a global strategic outsourcing firm - are to support Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival as we approach our 10th edition of the Festival.

The firm who have been working in the region since August 2013 as part of a scheme to better insulate council-owned homes, see this partnership as the next step in cementing their commitment to the north east.

Ben Jenkinson, regional manager of Mitie, said: “We see Berwick as a cornerstone of our north east business, and Berwick Film & Media Arts festival is an integral part of the cultural and community landscape. We are delighted to be able to help sustain the Festival through its 10th year and beyond.”

“Since starting work in the north east, we’ve been committed to sustaining and energising the community and the economy; be that through our insulation work, our creation of jobs in the region and now through supporting the best-loved and largest event in Berwick.”

Of the partnership, Festival Director, Melanie Iredale said, “We are thrilled to be supported by Mitie for this, our 10th edition. As a Festival we strive to be more and more ambitious each year, and to secure the support of such a well-known international organisation has certainly energised and invigorated the team even further!”
