Stephen Fry praises “vim and vigour” of Norwich Film Festival

The Norwich Film Festival is already welcoming entrants for its 2013 festival.

The first new judge for the festival has already been confirmed as Jane Gull, who directed this year's Best Short Film category winner, Sunny Boy.

The festival has also won a high-profile local supporter, comedian and Norwich City Football Club director, Stephen Fry.

Mr Fry sent organisers a note saying: 'I am delighted to support a fine film festival for a fine city and it's wonderful to see Norwich is continuing to support our local film industry with such vim and vigour.'
