    What a great honour to have TWO MOMENTS IN TIME selected for this festival. Even better that it played as part of the opening night fare. Importantly, and as its title suggests, this is a festival that recognises the need to tell stories that are inspirational. All correspondence from the team was respectful, courteous and timely. I wish the AIFF very best wishes for many many more fabulous festivals to come.
