    Swansea Film was an amazing experience. The festival runner's enthusiasm for the films they selected was clear for all to see.
    We loved sharing 'Campfire Story' with everyone over the two-night event and we can't wait to submit again next year!
    An incredibly professional film festival! We can't recommend it enough!
