November 14, 2013


THE director of the Cornwall Film Festival has hailed this year's event as one of the best yet , with an emotional rollercoaster line- up. Tiffany Holmes announced she was now stepping down as the principal organiser after overseeing the event at Newquay's Lighthouse Cinema for two years.

The festival, from Friday to Sunday, included feature films, documentaries, workshops and Q&A sessions with experts such as film critic Mark Kermode.

Sell-out Highlights this year included a sell-out screening of lesbian love story Blue Is The Warmest Colour, winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes film festival, and a silent cinema screening with live music by The Dodge Brothers.

More than 350 budding film directors from schools across the county took part in filmmaking workshops and masterwclasses. Ms Holmes said: It's been such an amazing honour to direct the festival.

I'm incredibly sad to be leaving, but really feel I'm going out on a high after such a great weekend. The Cornwall Film Festival's a really special event, and I can't wait to come back and enjoy it as an audience member next year.
