Art Smitten co-hosts Charlie, Aurora and Tom spoke with two of the festival’s organisers, Alice Fairweather and Sean Roberts, to glean some insight on how films were selected for the event, and their advice for other budding film-makers.



MIYFF is happening this weekend from Friday, May 31st! For more information and tickets, head to the official website: You can also follow the Festival via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
