  • Cameron really puts his heart and soul into the Four Seasons Film Festival which means you get a great event that is genuine and authentic. He organises media opportunities and promotes all the film makers as well as the stars of the films. During the festival he organised great photography of the event and was tireless in his posting to social media which benefitted everyone. His approach to marketing meant it was a sold-out, albeit that it's a smaller, boutique event, but still - I'd rather be at a smaller venue that's full than a large venue that's half full as it makes for a much better atmopshere. Highly recommended!
