Lily Canter, Film Northants chair, said: “This year the standard has surprised us yet

again with its quality and diversity and, as always, the judges had many disagreements over which films to shortlist. If these films can cause so many friendly arguments among our judging panel, you know they are pretty good.

“I think the public are really going to love watching them and seeing the talent our county is home to. I won’t say people will find it easy to choose, but I can guarantee they will enjoy trying.”
