    An excellent festival with a great selection of shorts and features. If your picture is unconventional and off-the-wall you should submit immediately! Highly recommended!

    Un ottimo festival che già alla sua seconda edizione può vantare un eccellente selezione di cortometraggi e lunghi: dagli auto-prodotti agli indipendenti passando per gli autoriali.

    Vorrei ringraziare nuovamente Paolo, il Direttore, per avermi fatto sentire parte dell'evento, alla quale purtroppo non ho potuto prendere parte di persona, grazie a una comunicazione continua prima, durante e dopo l'evento.

    Se il vostro prodotto è fuori dagli schemi allora state pur certi che qui troverà una casa e delle fantastiche persone pronte ad accoglierlo a braccia aperte.

    Spero di poter partecipare prossimamente con nuovo cortometraggio!
