"Best Festival in Europe"
The above quote came from an anonymous audience member in the comments section of our questionnaire, and we've been so pleased with some of the other responses to the Festival, we wanted to share them with you.
About Richard Skelton and Elysian Quartet at Brinkburn Priory:
setting off for Wang Bing's CRUDE OIL (@AVFestival

Never thought I'd use my dissertation for anything but there's much to be discussed on narrativisation and Enunciating in #AV14 films.
