Common Ground is today (29 June 2013) in competition for the Silver Castle at FEST 2013 in Espinho, Portugal.

Fingers crossed that the film meets a good reaction and that it acquits itself well in competition.

The film was made for a mere £500. To get this far is a wonderful achievement.

Well done all who made Common Ground.

And if you happen to be in or near Espinho, please go along to support the film…!
