DOCUMENTARY filmmaker Kathy Stringer, who featured in the Mid-Devon Advertiser series talking about her film Dartmoor Ponies: The Final Roundup, has had her film screened in the Big Apple, writes Sam Hall.

Miss Stringer entered her short film into the Equus Film Festival in New York, but will have to wait until November 22 to find out how she got on.

She said: ‘I am thrilled just to be having it screened there.

‘If it does win a category, there is a possibility that it could be toured around to other film festivals in America, too, such as The Kentucky Horse Park and Mackinac Island, Michigan.’

Miss Stringer explained that having been a student for four years hasn’t left her with the greatest amount of savings, meaning she won’t be travelling to the city that never sleeps.

However, her music composer will be there at the same time and has agreed to go and pick up some brochures on her behalf.

The film, which explores the reasons for slaughtering hundreds of healthy foals, has been viewed nearly 2,500 times online.

When asked about her plans for the future, Miss Stringer said: ‘At the moment I am just concentrating on getting a job and networking as this is so important at this early stage.

‘I am going to try and produce some shorter films about the wildlife in Bristol and, hopefully, later down the line, make a series of films about the other native breeds of ponies in Britain.’
