About the festival (from the NottIFF press materials):

“Nottingham’s motto of ‘virtue outlives death’ is as bold as the many stories that have been told about this world famous city. Its rich history of story will be at the very core of a film festival that will seek out the most amazing narratives from around the world. With an ambition to match its creative past, NottIFF is steadfast and determined to make its international film festival one that can stand up and be counted alongside any of the richest and established that already exist on the planet.

The international filmmaking community will descend in and around Sherwood Forest, to celebrate the inaugural official selection and indulge in world and UK premieres, story sharing work studios and after parties, filmmaker talks, and a closing award ceremony that will reward excellence and originality.

Distribution representation, film professionals, press attendance and most importantly a passionate platform for great lasting stories, The Nottingham International Film Festival 2016 will be the first of many in a new annual dynasty to remember.”
