The third Northampton Film Festival rounded off a week of events last night with an awards ceremony at Sixfields Cineworld which celebrated upcoming movie talent in and around Northampton.
Compered by NLive radio’s Dr Audrey Tang, guests were welcomed to the ceremony and screening of the winners by Becky Adams of Screen Northants who described the event as “the East Midlands Oscars”.
