In addition to three days of outdoor cinema at the Abbey Orchard by the Fighting Cocks pub, the work of finalists in the international short film and animation competition will be shown at The Odyssey cinema.

The theme of the fourth annual festival is The Mind and its mascot is Ray the gorilla (right).
