    Hello, Aalim. Congratulations once again for your win. Before declaring the results we wait till the end of the event because there might be Audience's Choice category winners and their names need to be declared too. However, we take every feedback seriously and we appreciate yours.

    I'm very confused by this film festival. I never received any updates on when or how my film would be shown. The website was never updated to reflect when the screening would take place or if it did. All I received were laurels - is this what we are paying for?

    Dear Megan, your film Raging Cult made it to the list of selected films only and you were notified of the same on the notification day itself. The results and all relevant information were published on our website the very next day. While we appreciate every feedback and take them seriously, we urge you to check the details before you raise a question on our integrity. We wish you all the best for all your works.
