As a young festival we have come a long way and it is so encouraging for our future growth and direction. The support has been overwhelming from both the film industry and our audiences. The local goodwill and enthusiasm here in Fingal has been truly amazing, a special big thank you to all our volunteers, they all have worked so incredibly hard."
