    We had a wonderful time showing THE SUIT WEARETH THE MAN, and THE GHOSTS OF BORLEY RECTORY and was super excited to win a Jury prize. Everyone was so lovely and friendly and the festival was super organised and welcoming. Would love to come back again!

  • The Romford Film Festival will always be close to my heart, not only for winning the Best Score award with my short film The Smuggler, but also because these guys are first and foremost pure film lovers. They took great care of my 'baby' and were extremely helpful throughout the process. To see my film on the big screen for the first time ever has been a surreal and unforgettable experience for me. Also the quality of the projection was top notch and the fact that the screening took place in a real cinema was an added bonus. I can't speak highly enough of the amazing team at the Romford Film Festival. I love you guys!!!!

    Romford is a festival of great energy, superior communication, and an ambitious lineup of 100 films. Spencer commands the cinematic kaleidoscope with the help of a full and talented team who do this event so well you have no possible doubt that they love film and filmmakers and film watchers or they wouldn't put out the creative sweat to bring all of us together. These people are never going to quit which I hope means we'll get the gift of return. Stephen Keep Mills, writer/director Love is not Love
