Programmer Alan Preece paused a film long enough to say:

 

“What are you doing on the 14th-16th? Fancy going to the cinema? No, I don’t mean paying £12 to watch something you’re probably not going to like… How about paying NOTHING and watching 40 films? C’mon, you got some other pressing engagement on those days?”

 

On the awards festival organiser Simon Munn he had this to say:

 

“There are so many talented film makers in this county of ours and we can’t wait to show you all of the brilliant films they’ve made”

 

 

Remember all the festival events are free to attend

…and everyone is welcome.
