VIDEO: ‘Hidden Child’ director bitten by Berwick Film Festival bug

His film premiered to great acclaim at Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival’s opening gala on Wednesday night and the event has certainly made a great impression on Per Hanejford.

The man behind Swedish crime thriller ‘The Hidden Child’, flew into Berwick on his birthday for the festival and after a night of celebrating I caught up with Per as he was walking between some of the inventive installations dotted around Berwick aa part of this year’s ‘North by Northeast’ programme.

He said he and star of the film, Claudia Galli, were overwhelmed by the welcome they’d received and described the festival as “great”, adding that he loved the inclusive and intimate feel it had, compared to the VIP nature of similar events.
