  • 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.
