Festival success for Happy Birthday, Toby Simpson

Bristol Film Festival is delighted to learn that Happy Birthday, Toby Simpson is being screened this Saturday at The Empire Cinema, Leicester Square, as part of the British Independent Film Festival 2017.

Bristol-based writer and director Patrick Makin compered a sold out sneak preview screener at Bristol Film Festival this March, and now the finished film has not only been selected for BIFF2017 but has also been nominated for awards in no less than six categories: Best Feature, Best Director, Best Lead Actor, Best Lead Actress, Best Music and the British Lion Award for achievement on a low budget.

Best of luck to Patrick and the team for the showing and the awards ceremony!
