A huge thank you to the incredible Liz Harkman for 6 years of solid dedication to the Bristol Festivals Network. Everyone across the network will miss your enthusiastic energy and are forever grateful for supporting us all as individuals. You have always been there for everyone and have made a huge contribution supporting organisations during a global pandemic. You will be greatly missed. Good luck with everything that lies ahead.

Kirsty Henderson, Bristol Festivals, Board Member 2022

Thank you, you were so supportive this year, and through the whole project, and I’ve loved that you make me raise my game, by asking the difficult questions. You have really made sure that we’re evaluating this programme properly.

“I had the chance to work with Liz for two years in the short film selection committee of the Locarno festival. In addition to her programming skills and her sensitive and precise look at the films that made up the selection, I noticed that Liz also had many skills and qualities concerning her knowledge of the economic constraints and the programming stakes of a festival. I was also able to discover British short films thanks to Liz’s research with emerging filmmakers.”
