    I highly recommend this festival. It's very well organised and as well as having a website they have a facebook page where they announce their selection of award winners.

    We were honoured to have the Finding Clive Teaser Trailer selected for a Platinum award. It's a lovely boost to our spirits and our project. Worth a go, I say!
