    Our Film Feeding Lewisham was entered with not much expectation of being selected, so huge shock although a welcome one to win best short documentary in our home town against such tough international competition at such a Wonderful film showcase. Can not thank every one enough .

  • I adore this festival. They have screened three of my experimental shorts. However, will admit I felt more "at home" when LISFF was held in Bermondsey, but I am still very proud to be a part of this festival. Thank you.
