NLFF 2006 was a rip-roaring success with nearly 4000 people attending over 80 screenings and 10 special events. Festival highlights included Addictive TV’s performance of Jack’s Back (Get Carter Redux), Warm Digits performance at The Cumberland Arms, and many of the films such as London to Brighton, After the Wedding and Esma’s Secret.
The NLFF team have recharged themselves and are now planning a mind-blowing programme for 2007. The winner of the Orange North Star Short Film Award 2006, Harry Wootliff, is currently working on the script for TRIP (the award winning idea), which will be shot and produced during the summer, to premiere at NLFF 2007. Harry is an exciting, up-and-coming filmmaker who recently finished the short NITS.
So watch this space and please have a look at a few of the photos from the 2006 festival, which can be viewed here.
