    I have so much love for this festival. The communication was second to none throughout. The films were of an excellent standard and I was privilaged to have my film screen alongside them. The award ceremony was one of the most supportive ones I've been to. They even laid on loads of free food! The icing on the cake was winning the Best New Filmmaker Award and getting to chat and connect with so many filmmakers. Highly recommend this festival and I will be submitting again next year.

    Absolutely brilliant festival! So much incredible talent in the Midlands that I had the pleasure of watching. Arun and Gurjant did such an amazing job over the festival and created an awesome networking space for creatives. Thanks for having our film 'The Space Between' in your line up and for taking home 'Honorable mention' as well as 2 other nominations! An incredible festival that I will definitely be returning to.

  • Brilliant festival with super friendly and open communications from the directors. Great standard of films throughout. They ran the festival with a personal touch and even followed up with our team afterwards. A lot of effort went into the awards party, which was a lot of fun. Delighted that Bully picked up Best Screenplay and Best Male Actor for Richard Glover. Many thanks, Martin and James
