    What a fantastic event! So supportive, with lots of very helpful ideas on how to move my script forward. I was so happy to have my short script "The Orchard" chooses to be featured and read there. Also to spend time with such a collection of wonderful creatives who had travelled from all over the Uk, and abroad to share the day. Made new friends and connections, and now look forward to making my short later this year. Thank you so much for all the team at Lift-Off you really are a great, and your enthusiasm to help the independent industry is inspiring. Thanks Kathryn Carmichael
