 Hi it's Sarah and Adele here, this was our first time working together On The Road.  We have been to the Cornwall Film Festival at the Lighthouse Cinema in Newquay.

The venue was brilliant, accessible and the staff were friendly and helpful.  We screened in the afternoon to a mostly non-disabled audience, it went well, it was nice to be in a proper cinema!  After our screening we checked out some of the rest of the festival – the animated shorts were brilliant!  We did think that the screening was a bit long though, we think our screenings of half an hour are just right.

It was great to be part of a film festival with a mainstream audience.  We met some interesting film-makers and we really hope to get more films from Cornwall entered into Oska Bright 2013!
