    One of the best experiences I have had at a Film Festival so far! Superb venue at Premiere Cinemas London. Great hospitality! We went with no expectations but we were just eager to see our film CENSURE on the big screen with an audience. To receive BEST DIRECTOR, BEST ACTOR AND BEST ORIGINAL SCORE was beyond all expectation. An amazing reaction from the crowd to the film and numerous people approached us afterwards to congratulate us. A wonderful event and evening!
