Response from festival:
Hi Patrick, thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, as you can imagine this year's festival was an incredibly unusual one. This made the festival and awards ceremony difficult to stage and navigate. After discussing our options with filmfreeway it was advised and agreed that we hold the awards ceremony behind closed doors. All selected videos were shown to our judges, crew and a small number of adjudicators, who were on-set in line with broadcast protocols. However we are considering screening all 2020's selected videos at next years live event, as we know how much it means for to get our work up on the big screen. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for more info but we will reach out to you and other contestants via filmfreeway to ask for your permission in showing your entry over the coming year, if this is something we are able to commit to, and there is an appetite for. Thanks again for your feed back, it is critical for us to know what we do well and what we get wrong, especially as we are a young Festival. Keep creating and stay safe.
