"This was an excellent experience. Great organisation, cool venue and a welcoming team. The film selections was fabulous, with an eclectic mix of genres and styles going from traditional to experimental. It was amazing being in the midst of so many talented individuals. I particularly liked the way they celebrated and awarded all screenwriters participating in the competition. Great fun".
"Fantastic festival. The selection of films are electric and well chosen providing a weekend of entertainment along with the opportunity to network. The communication, hospitality and overall festival is one that filmmakers and writers should submit their work to, but it is also a festival for people who just love movies.Congratulations to all the organisers, you did a great job! "

“It has been a great weekend @Fest in Garter Lane. Much respect to Fest Director Stephen Byrne. Many thanks also to the Garter Lane staff.” Liam Murphy
I just wanted to say a sincere thank-you and congratulations on a superb film festival. Over the course of the event I traveled across the world, visited noble cultures, entered people's dignified lives and experiences and now understand differently so many things I took for granted.
Stephen, it is people like you who are making a difference.........please keep making it! With kind regards,
