DERELICT Scoops Audience Award for Best Film!

VLM are proud to announce that DERELICT has won the Audience Award for Best Film at this year's WORCESTERSHIRE FILM FESTIVAL.

Graham was also there to take questions on his experience of acting in the starring role.

DERELICT is now available to view on the BEHIND THE MASK FOUNDATION's website. The Foundation offers free counselling and peer support and was set up by high profile combat veteran, Michelle Sanderson.
