The perfect film festival experience! The organisation and communication was brilliant and it was phenomenal to have such a large audience at the screenings. The team's passion for independent filmmaking was clear to see in every aspect of the event. I was delighted to attend and saw many excellent films, met lots of great contacts and was overjoyed that my film 'Left' came away with two nominations and a win for Best Edit. A wonderful platform for filmmakers and I can't wait for next year. Highly recommend The HB Film Festival to everyone!
