Overall Rating
  • Ljubba Stefanovic

    I'm proud that the video I wrote, edited and directed won the June award at the festival held in my country and I'm excited waiting for the annual event.

    The organization and announcement of the winners was extremely well executed, while the website design, jury commentary and design are at an aesthetically superior level.
    The jury commentary made me smile and encouraged me more in writing my short film.

    I recommend the 1st Monthy Film Festival to everyone.
