Several incredible film were also submitted to our festival this year that featured drone footage and action cameras but also used other camera equipment and were therefore ineligble to compete. With the very kind permission of the Director, Producers, Cast and Crew this is one of those amazing films and we have included it in the screenings tonight as a "friends of the festival selection"
