    The Art Film Awards is a unique film festival with a unique name. They definitely love the art of film and they are an excellent platform for us film makers to express and showcase our love for the art of film. We are grateful for the Best Horror Film award for our film 'Can You Hear Me' and their kind assistance throughout the selection process. We highly recommend the Art Film Awards.

    It's really worth to take part! Great and fast communication and lovely that they really work for art and not commercial purposes. The certificate you receive if you win is also great. I'm waiting to have another work to apply again!!
