Hart of Bodmin into Cornwall Film Festival

I’m pleased to announce that The Hart of Bodmin documentary I edited in 2009 has made it into this years Student Screenings.

As you imagine I’m pretty excited about the prospect of getting into the festival and can’t wait until November – keep an eye on the Cornwall Film Festival Website for more details of the Festival.
