    I've had many films at many festivals. Some festivals are very low key with a screening in a pub or a community centre or even a shed once! But the Rob Knox Film Festival is in a cinema, it has an award ceremony with trophies in seven categories. And for a great cause for a foundation looking at knife crime in young people. The quality of films is excellent, and has an attending filmmaker, I felt very valued, appreciated and the award ceremony had great support from known celebrities, TV actors, Producers etc. It's a very real festival that is growing and growing over the years. I fully support it and recommend it for future filmmakers.
