    Although we weren't able to attend the festival in person, we were very impressed with the organisation and communication that went into the arrangements, and were proud to be part of the event.

    My wife and I plus two cast members from our film loved the festival and had a great time. The venue was nice, quality of sound and video good and the people were great. Great job to festival director Willy Adkins for making this a fun time. He was great communicating with my wife and I about our film being selected and what we needed.
