  • They do not respond to social networks, there are 0 information about them on the Internet to get in touch, poor comunity, they chose a film for the qualifying stage, but there is no information where to follow, what to do and how. Now I go to see when the information, I see it was restarted before reporting and they offer to submit it to the festival. Definitely a fake festival
