    Thanks Janet, we appreciate the support.

  • Gotta thank the Windrush Caribbean Film Festival team for their tireless work in staging such a fantastic festival. It's no mean feat to organise a programme over a month and at different venues across the country. Total respect for the platform you give to film makers to share their works and give a voice that isn't commonly heard. Was truly wonderful to watch some brilliant films and meet and connect with other creators. Thank you, bless you, one perfect love every time.
