Clapperboard
The festival is now in its 27th year
Cornwall is playing host to delegates taking part in an annual celebration of the best of Celtic film and television.

Venues in and around Falmouth will be screening productions from all the Celtic nations including Cornwall.

It is five years since the Celtic Film and Television Festival, now in its 27th year, was held in Cornwall.

The event brings together broadcasters and filmmakers from other Celtic regions such as Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Brittany.

Films and documentaries will be screened to delegates and the festival will conclude with its annual awards ceremony.

Awards are given out in three categories - screen, radio and new media. The Cornish productions have been shortlisted from 400 entries.

Among the nominees are Rick Stein's The Teaching Challenge and the documentary A Picture Of Cornwall by Kurt Jackson.

There are 95 nominations in all with 27 for Scotland, 26 for Wales, 30 for Ireland, and 2 for Brittany.

The event runs from 29 to 31 March.
