Watch this years' Festival Trailer:

I was on the jury at this festival, and it was a real pleasure... Thanks to the other judges for their patience with my limited French.

I was very busy watching the many films selected, but I did manage to take a few iPhone snaps... A bit random, but enjoy!! :) My delightful companion was anthropologist, Dr. Sarah Bologna.

A very friendly festival, I recommend that you all go next year!! NB. Brush up on your French though!! :-D

We'd also like to mention a film that was entered into the competition, by member Hilco Jansma, who joined us there with much travel-hardship and it was a real pleasure to see him... We loved his film... The Noorderplantsoen. :)

Oh, I did a radio interview with Radio Gatine:
