We would especially like to thank our sponsors; Tanners Wine Merchants and Moviemail, the latter have generously sponsored the World Cinema strand of the Festival.


Our thanks also to the Elmley Foundation, Advantage West Midlands, the European Union through Herefordshire Council's Creative Industries programme, the Film Council's Lottery-funded Regional Investment Fund for England through Screen West Midlands and the Leader+ Herefordshire Rivers programme, without whose financial support the Festival would not take place.


We would also like to thank our partners.
