Drawn from hundreds of entries, the nominees attended a glittering awards ball at Newton Hall, Northumberland, last week where Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival was named Best Community Event of the Year.

Board member Joe Lang (pictured, attached) said: “This is great acknowledgment of the fantastic work of our festival team and dedicated volunteers – and to the support of our audiences. The Festival gets more and more ambitious every year, and is now earning Berwick international attention.”

Berwick Film & Media Arts festival picked up the award for Best Event, sponsored by Banks group, in recognition of what was a home-grown festival which has developed in to an international celebration, capturing the imaginations of audiences from all over Northumberland and visitors across the UK to Berwick-upon-Tweed each September.
