    We are used to participating in the most prestigious film festivals such as Cannes and Henri Langlois in Paris, Venice and Toronto, We are very disappointed with this 3 in 1 Film Festival in Portugal, where our film was supposedly selected for this festival however was not even in the program. Despite my several phone calls we had absolutely no feedback. Very disappointed with the poor organization.

  • Despite being a new festival, the 3in1 Film Fest Festival, showed excellent organization and great professionalism in the closing session and the awards ceremony. Good movies and great support for the movie community.

  • Congratulations to the festival's organisation for not only the courage to promote cinema in this crazy year of 2020, but also for the capability to adapt to it and to continue to promote cinema regardless. It was a distinct pleasure to have our short animated film "the peculiar crime of oddball Mr Jay" win the best animation award. It was a great experience.
