The 2012 LIT Film Festival will take place from the 26th to 28th of April, inclusive. Over the last two years the festival has grown from strength to strength and its organizers have ambitiously decided to focus the festival on a series of events targeting the future of the industry. This will consist of an exhibition of professional film and industry equipment, workshops run by industry professionals and a film competition. The judging panel will be announced over the next couple of weeks. The end of the festival will culminate in a glittering awards night for the film competition.
