    A throughly enjoyable experience watching some really good films at the festival. Great venue, a very welcoming crowd. I highly recommend going next year!

    A nice local (to us) festival with some decent films and great venue. A little under-attended on our day but the other days seemed popular. Very little communication with the festival on the day.

    A fantastic venue, terrific quality picture, great sound system and you can take your drinks in to boot! I can't speak highly enough about about these guys, whether you're a film-maker or a punter, check them out!
