    Really happy with the support from Jamie in finding the appropriate category for our first dance film. And super excited to find out we won our category. There were some fabulous selections in there and it must have been so difficult to judge. Thanks for the encouragement and we look forward to getting more submissions together in the near future.

    Really friendly crew running the festival. Some amazing films. High quality content. Feel very honoured to have won the Audience Award for Curse of Minerva against such high competition. It means a lot to me and thank you to everyone.
