A Grand Ball was held at the Town Hall in Hereford to celebrate the Borderlines Film Festival.

The 100 guests including funders and sponsors enjoyed a champagne reception on the grand staircase while they were serenaded by an accordion and violin duo. This was followed by a four course meal provided by Lynn Bullock, screenings of early footage about Herefordshire, entertainment from the Secret Opera Singers, clips of feature films and documentaries made in the county and dancing to Los Squideros. An auction with lots including photographs of Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando and Audrey Hepburn from the Kobal collection raised more than 2,000 to support the Festival in 2011.

The 2010 Film Festival took place at 40 venues throughout Herefordshire and Shropshire with more than 200 screenings and events.
