Nick Bartram, Gasway’s managing director, said: "Throughout the pandemic, local filmmakers like Trett Films have helped us and hundreds of companies across the UK visualise the importance of family and community.

"Our adverts and short films focus on the warmth that both our families and communities provide, and this Christmas it feels more important than ever to highlight this.

"The last two years have been tough for the creative industry, and by sponsoring the film festival, we’re not only able to support a great local cultural event, but also international filmmaking talent.

"I am really looking forward to seeing this year’s Warm Stories on the festival’s big screen – it’s the perfect place for it to premier."

Gasway bosses wanted to highlight the importance of family and community spirit through its 'Warm Stories' campaign and its work in alignment with Norwich City Football Club which shows a family's bond with the club.
