Thank you Family Festival!!!

We are London-based film-makers and we made our first short film ‘Tea & Coffee’ last year which we submitted to the Festival and this was an absolutely amazing experience! They not only accepted our short in to the Festival for Drama and Family, but also informed us that Tea & Coffee had been accepted for the Feedback Festival, where we get a chance to hear live audience feedback after a screening of our short.

This was all incredibly well organised, with regular communication from the respective Festival teams and we were delighted to receive a video of the live audience feedback yesterday, as we could not travel to Toronto for this.

Thank you so much, this has been such a wonderful and life-changing experience!
