Archive: ENCOUNTERS wins Best Feature at Cornwall Film Festival 2005


The 2005 Cornwall Film Festival was a huge success.

Thank you to all the filmmakers, the guests who took workshops, discussions, o­ne-to-ones, masterclasses and Q&A sessions, the Festival Board, sponsors and all participants.

The 2005 Cornwall Film Festival Prize Winners are:

  • Delabole Slate Best Film of the Festival – Pat Kelman with his bittersweet feature called ENCOUNTERS.  Pat was very emotional when George and Thesselie Hamilton of Delabole Slate handed him his award.  Having just returned to Cornwall after 10 years of working away from home he was very heartened and moved by the result and vowed to keep it o­n his desk.
  • Delabole Slate Best Student Film of the Festival.   For the second year running a University College Falmouth student has won the prize – Russell Hancock triumphed with SUNDAY BENCH.

“We’ve had such an amazing response during the Festival, I’m so pleased that we are now attracting talent scouts from all over Britain who want to see what we’ve got in Cornwall. I believe that the Festival has been a great inspiration as I am receiving many enthusiastic calls and emails and we definitely got more people engaged in the Festival than in previous years.” Lucy Frears – Festival Director 2005.
