    Had a wonderful weekend in an absolutely fairytale setting, of the Citadel. The evening features were shown under the stars, and were of a very high standard. The daytime film showings were in an air conditioned cinema, as were the talks and workshops. All in all a very worthwhile, enjoyable and entertaining weekend attended by many different film people and members of the general public.
