Highlights include the opening night film and the UK premiere of Le Champion, a documentary about Australian boxing champion Sakio Bika, the European premiere of romantic drama Cerulean Blue and South By Southwest favourite J.R. 'Bob' Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius, a documentary about the controversial underground movement the Church of the Subgenius.

Also screening is an eclectic mix of short films starring some of the biggest names in British film, including This Time Away with Timothy Spall, A Battle In Waterloo starring Jessie Buckley, Fingers Crossed which stars Jason Watkins, Luger with Jack Whitehall and O Holy Ghost which stars Ben Whishaw.

After three years the festival has developed a reputation for screening the best independent films from around the world in a city that is rich with history and legends.
