    I was not able to come to the festival, but the comunication and PR were amazing and engaging. With all the problems with Covid and the obstacles it created, I think the festival team worked really hard and did an amazing job, finding a new wonderful venue, inviting the artists to give video statements about the film, inviting them to the festival and creating really a wonderful programme. Thank you!
