James Barratt ,

Excellent Podcast

Hugely enjoyable, highly recommended.

cinefan2021 ,

Great concept, well produced

In an age of summer blockbusters all lasting 3hrs + this festival recognises the runtime goal ALL film makers should aspire to. Shinning a light on the familiar and some must see hidden gems with a short runtime, the selection of guests on the pod are always well prepped to talk about the passion they have for their choice. Lovely stuff.

Andrew Owen ,

Fun listen

Always a fun listen, always a good film, always a good guest. Well worth a pop.
