Well now the hurly burly's done we hope you had as good fun as we did!
So all that remains is to say heartfelt thank yous to all our amazing, generous guests, to all our kind volunteers, to the wonderful people of Cromarty who sure know how to welcome folk, and most importantly to all who bought a ticket and came together to a room or a hall or a random open air space - to laugh, or cry or be informed, while watching little flickering bits of light projected onto a screen.
And... if you visited us last year, and whether you liked the experience or felt there was room for improvement, we would really love to hear from you so please take a moment to fill in our anonymous feedback form that you can find here. Your comments and/or feedback will really help us with our future planning.
So... until next time. Sláinte
"I just wanted to tell you thanks again for everything and making me a part of this amazing experience. I am so grateful to meet the whole Cromarty Film Festival family and its vibrant spirit.

Following on from the Film Festival... one of our raffle prizes on the final night was this fabulous framed sketch that was the basis for the creation of the 'Cromarty Creature' by feature film/TV creature creator, Gary Pollard.
It was won by Jo Shapcott who was completely over-the-moon when she realised she had won it!
This is a photo of Jo receiving the framed sketch and... to remind everyone of what it finally looked like - magnificent, we think you'll agree.

During our the film festival in 2018, animator Cat Bruce and Sound Designer Keith Duncan worked
together in a very special workshop that we organised in close collaboration with enthusiasts both young and old.
They worked around a theme which was based around our honoured guest, the poet, Jackie Kay's beautiful poem:
Now please take a look at the fantastic results:
