    To my regret I could not visit the festival in person. However communication was excellent, smootheless and of course we were very pleased to be granted the best feature documentary for "Golden Dawn a public affair". It is encouraging people at the other edge of the planet are concerned about democracy illnesses in Greece. A great pleasure, many thanks
