" I'm very grateful to IFTUK's St Patrick's & St Brigid's Film Festival for accepting my film, Toast the Brides and showing it on their platform during the festival. The festival gave my film and myself great exposure. I will have no hesitation whatsoever in entering future films into this festival and encourage others to do so. "
