I spent the weekend at the brilliant Heart of Gold International Film Festival.
1. The festival was started by award-winning director Toni Powell.
2. The festival is hugely popular.
But here are 2 other things you might like to know:
1. Toni’s award-winning short film was the first film she ever made.
2. The festival is only in its 2nd year. It’s run by Toni and her husband Philip, and an army of fantastic volunteers.
Last year they knew nothing about running a film festival. This year they know a little more.
Sometimes you don’t know you’re good at something until you give it a go.
