BARNES FILM FESTIVAL 2018
An extremely well run and friendly festival which I recommend everyone takes notice of. We were lucky to win first prize in our age category. Barnes was the first win for Perched which has since been screened at over 100 festivals worldwide, winning 18 awards. It has also been seen at six Oscar qualifying screenings. Not only that, I now work for a top London production company who offered me the role of 2D commercials director after seeing Perched at Barnes. It has certainly changed my life and I am very grateful.Liam Harris
