Overall Rating
  • An excellent festival which we were delighted to take part in. There was a wide variety of fantastic films screened in a truly beautiful old cinema. The Hyperdrive team, lead by Tim were extremely helpful and welcoming and there were great opportunities to network with other like minded film makers and some useful contacts made.
