This time we hope to focus mainly on North West film-makers and are currently in the process of sourcing work from local artists. Are you a film-maker? Do you know any local film-makers? This could be a great way to showcase your work for free and get inspired by other film-makers in the lush surroundings of The New Continental (
See the PAD website for details of how to apply.
