  • Please as film festivals you have to promote us on your websites, pages on social media - if we are selected and awarded and honored.
    What is the point with the festivals then?
    And thank you for your honorable mention.
    I wish you to last longer than 1 year, than longer than 5 years - than longer than 10 years ...
