  • There is no communication with the participants of the film festival. Our film was marked as Nominated on the day of the start of the film festival, the organizers did not inform about anything/ invited me to come until I myself wrote and began to learn the details about the festival. I don't recommend it. There are many free film festivals that are worthy of attention and take care of their participants
