    This is a well organised week long film festival packed with screenings and interesting parallel events.
    Communication was excellent, the well-designed webpage displays plenty and useful information.
    Notable jury members were assigned to the short, student and experimental competitions.

    This festival marked by film as "accepted". They didn't follow up with me, and when I followed up with them, they told me they didn't receive my information and my film wasn't included. No invite or anything.
