Phil Dunn, writer/director wrote: “OUTSTANDING festival. This is how you do it. Other festivals take note. Tons of sold-out nights, amazing selection of high calibre films and beautiful screenings at gorgeous Everyman Cinemas. Topped off by amazing awards event with food, drinks, desserts, stand-up comedy and hilarious comedy shorts (like really LOL funny). Thanks for nominating us for Best Short Film – such an honour when the selections were so high class!”

What’s more, CPIFF finds young filmmakers, gets them screened and into paid work experience that has lead to full time employment.

With Animation, Horror/Sci-fi, Documentaries, Features and Short Film most nights sell out (when most other festivals are empty) so book early on the website here: CPIFF.co.uk.
