Thanks for posting about our film festival! Please spread the word amongst those you know.

Some of our panellists include BAFTA award winners, journalists, writers, film-makers, medical ethicists and top psychiatrists.

Did we mention each venue has a free wine and food reception?

Hi Rory. I will try and persuade my entire class to come to the UCL one. Brian Glasser is the film man on our course and I see he is on your panel. Good luck with your festival.
