Leigh Film Patron


We are incredibly excited and proud to be able to announce that
Christopher Eccleston the award winning actor from Salford, Manchester is now the Patron of both Leigh Film Society & the annual Leigh Short Film Festival.

Leigh Film secretary Elizabeth Costello said: “We are so honoured at Leigh Film to have Christopher Eccleston as our patron. We have been working over the past four years on delivering quality community cinema and having Christopher, an award winning actor, as our patron is amazing recognition for what we do and our ethos.

“He was raised not a stone’s throw away from Leigh and we believe he proves that with hard work and passion for what you believe in you can succeed.

“It is hoped through Christopher’s patronage that we at Leigh Film can raise the aspiration of young people in the borough to get involved in film and other associated activities.”
