    So excited to hear that Apeulogy was selected to be included in this year's festival! Great communication and an absolutely stellar line-up, too! Unfortunately due to a last-minute work commitment, I was unable to attend the event - but looking forward to submitting again next year!

    I cannot rate the hospitailty or networking aspect of the festival because we were unable to attend this year. As for communication, the BFABF team was always on-point re. the exhibition times and details, and everyone was and friendly and attentive. Their quality of their film program was very strong, and overall it was well worth submitting as we won the Audience Award for Best Short Documentary! Thank you BFABF!
