Festival manager Jacqueline Cockerill was very pleased with the buzz surrounding the festival.
"It's been incredible the amount of support we are getting from the industry. Festivals like this one help put independent film-making on the map and also promote the industry in general, so we're keen to continue building this festival each year and hope audiences enjoy the event as much as we enjoy putting it on."
She continued: "We have a varied selection of films this year, all with great stories and incredible film-making talent behind them. We are also proud to announce that the winner of the Newport International Film Festival, will be screening each year at the British Independent Film Festival, as part of the Official Selection, but 'Out of Competition'. This year it is the British boxing drama 'Risen'.
