A festival spokie frothed: ‘With the audience numbers increasing by more than five times since its inception in 2002 and the number of film submissions rising yearly, it has been necessary to find a new venue able to accommodate the growing festival.

Quelle decadent.
The Cornwall Film Festival 2009 will take place from November 12-15. For details, check out (surprise!) the Cornwall Film Festival website.
