It may have been in its 13th edition but it was lucky number 13 for Nic Cornwall whose film Solo! picked up Best Feature at The Marbella International Film Festival earlier this month.
A romantic comedy musical, Solo! is about a young Englishman who arrives in a remote, run-down Spanish village and has to reform their band – before they find out that it was his dad who ruined the village in the first place.
Director Nic Cornwall picked up the prize at the Gala Awards Dinner, held once again at the H10 Andalucia Plaza Hotel, where guests also included Craig Fairbrass – in Marbella to shoot the latest in the Rise of the Footsoldier franchise, and legendary, actor, writer and director Steven Berkoff, who took best actor for Tell Tale Heart.
