We love stories. We love telling them, we love reading them, we love watching them. That’s the reason why we get so excited when we see an untold story, or a well-known story that is told in an untold way. That’s also the reason why we treat every one of those stories as if they’re our stories. To us, every storyteller, every filmmaker is precious. They are one of us, we are one of them. We never forget that they are real people, like we are. They deserve fair evaluations, competent juries, and absolute respect.

Not a single performance, art, or craft is the same as others; all of them are unique. This is the way we see others, and this is the way we think as for ourselves. Therefore, when you send us your craft, always keep this in mind. We are not just one of those thousands. You are not just one of those millions.
