The festival - run by the Film Festival Guild - began in 2006, and provides a show case for short films, movies, animations, and music video,s and aims to promote and support independent film making.

Festival manager Gabby Hermon said: “This year, our festival will go out to eleven locations across the UK, including The Luxe Cinema in Wisbech on May 10 and 11.

“Making an independent film is a huge feat and one that we take great pride in celebrating. The ardent and resourceful spirit behind quality independent film making is something that the Film Festival Guild is dedicated to bringing to a wider cinema audience. Why should fantastic and interesting festivals be for the pleasure of a London audience only?

“We have a range of short and feature films screening for the first time in this country. Festival goers will be able to see these films months before they hit the cinemas.”

Other venues for the 2013 festival include The Princess Theatre in Hunstanton, The Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester Square, and The Electric Palace Cinema in Harwich.

Among the feature films on show at The Luxe will be “Saving the Titanic”, directed by Maurice Sweeney, “Dead Cat” directed by Stefan Georgiou, and “Sanctuary” directed by Norah McGettigan.
