Today we were joined in the studio by the lovely Leoni Kibbey director of the St. Albans Film Festival which will take place for the 2nd year running from the 1st to the 4th of May.
Although the festival takes place in St. Albans Leoni receives entries from as far a field as Australia and Iceland.
As well as the film competition there are a variety of workshops to attend- last year there was a stop frame animation workshop as well as an extreme sports filming workshop at the Pioneer Club.
Like last year there will be a showing of a feature film in St. Albans Abbey to open the festival. This years theme is Birds- so bets are on for a cheeky bit of Hitchcock...
In 2013 Leoni received the Mayors Pride award for Cultural Innovation for setting up the film festival and in April she will be running the London Marathon to raise funding for the charity Shelter.
